Shadows look pixelated?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Im using a 8800 GTS 320mb and whenever I use high or low on shadows, the shadows look horribly pixelated. Anybody else have this problem? Thanks.

nvidia cards have always sucked at shadows... thats how they get away with all those frames...

If you really care about the details of shadows, look into an ATI card...
good enough

ive noticed oit on cnc 3 demo and medieval 2 total war demo, shadows look fine on 3dmark06 tho.

The shadows are like the shadows of the guys and their spears. On CNC3 its the shadows on their building, and I mean they are really bad like square almost.

My monitor is a Dell 2007WFP

i get that blocky pixelized look in some areas too, but im using a 32' lcd hdtv though. its also my tv so not the greatest monitor for gaming. however on my 17' lcd it never happens so it might be something with the monitor.

I also noticed the exact pixels on Medieval 2: Total Wars, which is made by SEGA?
