Default GFX problem

hey guys,

I've got dual 6600gt's (leadtek 128mb) and in some games alot of green flashes start going off, it happened in Medal Of Honour Pacific Assulat so i tried the game in lowest possible~800x600 and it still did it..... any ideas?

Do you have an adequate power supply? That may be some of your issues

Yeah, i'm thinking that the fact that you have 2 video cards and only a 380W might be the issue. I have a 350 and had to upgrade because i got just one x800XL and 2 gigs of ram, 3 sata hdd's and a couple pci cards

those symptoms point to either dying graphics card (not so likely), overheating, lack of power or bad drivers.
