Problem with CPU PLZ HELP!
When ever I play games i am getting an extremely distorted image. There are odd polygons and lines on the screen that flicker on and off. I have no idea what is making this happen. The only upgrade i have done recently is changed out my old Geforce 9800 card for the new 570. This problem also happens with any internet browser (I've tried IE, Firefox and Google Chrome) With the browsers the edges, particularly near the Minimize, Maximize, Close Window part int he upper right corner becomes heavily distorted, however when I move my mouse over the distorted image it immediately goes back to normal. I have enclosed the following video of me trying to play a game, I am getting 60 FPS so performance isn't' an issue but rather the distorted graphics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5bPhtKiZ4s&feature=youtu.be




I have a Dell XPS 720 http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps720/en/OM_EN/appendix.htm#wp1057811

The basic specs are:
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.4GHz
4gb ram
GeForce 570
Running Windows 7 (32 bit)

I was running 64 bit and thought that may be the cause of my problem and rebooted to the 32 bit to see if that helped... it did not. This problem happens with EVERY game I play from Age of Empires III to SWTOR. However, when I'm watching a video (either on DVD or from the internet) the picture quality is perfect.

What's the wattage of your power supply? I believe Nvidia recommend at least a 600W PSU for a gtx 570.

Also what are the temps of your CPU and GPU? Install HWMonitor and have it running in the background while playing a game - http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

1000w power supply

According to the DL:

This is after having been playing a game (Diablo 3) for around 2 hours

Each of my cores are running at around 96F (36C)
Graphics card at 102F (39F)
1000w power supply

Those temps are normal so that's overheating ruled out. Try doing a clean driver install using the latest 301.24 driver - http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-uk
