Ok here's the problem. First i had a Geforce MX400 64MB graphic card. But a year or 2 ago it started to become quiet worthless. Since i'm a gamer 4 life i needed a better one in order to be able to play my games.
A few months ago i got myself a Geforce 7600 512MB and there's where the problems begane. When i started a game it started to show so called ''artifacts'' within five minutes. Sometimes it doesnt show them at all but just totally freezes instead. I went back to the store (wich has a good tech-support service) to see what was wrong. They spend 2 hours working with my PC and concluded my card was broken. So I got a new one wich was tested and worked correct. Still the artifacts started to show up. Even at the shop they had no idea what it could be. They had a suggestion that my AGP portal in my motherboard could be broken but they werent shure.
PLEASE help me with this if you can. I would apprechiate it so much.
here are some pictures
Some games are worse then others. This game for example isn't the worst one. But The elder scrolls: Oblivion becomes practically Inplayable. But Hitman: Bloodmoney doesnt show artifacts at all. Sometimes you can see them in flashes but nothing more. (this game is the ONLY one without those artifacts so far).
