Default Video card issues

I have a slight problem with my XFX 8800gts 512 G92...the only game I noticed this problem in is WoW. I seem to get graphic glitches in certain areas and one time the entire screened turned pink...little freezes here and there any ideas?

Default Re: Video card issues

First have you considered it might not be your graphics card.? Some first steps are to see if there is a patch for the game. Then make sure your graphic drivers are current and sometimes you even have to roll them back. Also make sure of your version of direct X. Sometimes I do have a problem playing an older game with a newer graphics card though.
