470 artifacting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was trying to play Dirt3 with ambient occlusion on, and it caused the textures to start artifacting. I've also noticed this in just cause 2 when AO was enabled. I haven't been able to confirm if it happens on every game -- but that may be the case.

Turning off AO resolves the issue and I can max all settings with no issue.

Using driver 296.10. Stock settings, no overclock.

And since one of the ports on the card is dead anyway, do you think I should RMA it? If not, could you tell me what could be causing the problem? Thanks guys.

Can you revert back to an older driver and test

 

I had artifacting with my drivers in the previous WHQL but the problem was gone after trying out another driver.

Well, I just took out the card to dust it and I think I found the source of the problem:

Probably why one of my DVI ports died on me and why I'm artifacting. Do you think that's the reason?
