this guy also didn't read it cuz he thinks my computers black screening while i play.

also like i said before i'm not here lookin for help or answers.

RMA maybe a possible solution, I might do it at some point. It still seems like some baloney to have to rma everything I buy. (I had to RMA my last motherboard, I probably should RMA this mobo but I dont want to) MSI and ASUS are the brands I buy and being in a position where I should be RMAing all the parts of my computer that are made specifically for AMD or are AMD is also not a good sign. I'd rather sell the whole machine in a working state and grab new gear. but that could be kinda tough to find a buyer

as far as the rest of these issues they're starting to seem like they may be directly related to windows updates every the time, except the sc2 thing. I haven't played it in a while so there is a slight off chance they did fix it but for at least 3-4 months after buying the cards they did that annoying crap in sc2. more intense graphics like metro2033, heaven benchmark, furmark, etc. do not artifact or distort. only sc2 is missing elements and screwing up.

the SC2 problems are everlasting, but as far as the rest of these issues they're starting to seem like they may be directly related to windows updates every the time.
Well if your not here for help or answers this should be posted in the rant section in OT.

Not in a fourm section where help is requested, so don't get a mad when people try to help because you don't understand where to post correctly.

I was about to come here to offer my help and opinions. But you need to maintain a more professional stance to other users, before i help you.

Install the drivers properly, just uninstall then install again (no sweeper), run vsync, and all is dandy.

If you are angry, go to off topic, rant, and post it here. This section is for HELP, not rants.

Cheers
