Is that vanilla? I've had textures glitch out on me before. And simple fix was to alt-tab out and back into the game and the texture came back normal. See if that helps fix it for you should it happen again. I seriously doubt it is your graphics card dying.

Also, I noticed a post of yours a week ago in another thread saying that your graphics card stutters while you're playing even though pushing 50-60fps. I'll admit that I've had that happen too. My fix as of late has simply been to alt-tab out and back into the game as soon as I start up. This is to ensure that Skyrim is running at the highest priority as possible, also it tends to cure any stuttering problems I've had. My FPS while in Whiterun will show 40-45 fps when I first boot up the game, then when I alt-tab out and back in it will jump up to 55-60 fps. Note that it doesn't always jump up my FPS, but when I notice it is lower than usual I just alt-tab to make sure that process priority isn't the problem.

I believe some others have fixed this problem with the Simple Borderless Window mod. Maybe try that if you haven't already and see if it helps? Otherwise, I dunno what to say. What drivers are you running currently? I'm running a developer preview of 12.2 and so far I haven't noticed many quirks. 11.12 WHQL was way worse than 11.12 Preview for me for some reason. And 12.1 wasn't the best drivers for Battlefield 3, on my setup at least.

Hope I helped some!

I have ENB installed. I did try alt-tabbing out and back in, didn't help either the stuttering or the texture problem. I've had some flickering and texture glitches in other games as well. This combined with the random performance issues just makes me wonder if it's possible that the GPU is faulty. Not convinced or anything, though.

Windowed mode is no better, and I've tried drivers from 11.11a to 12.1, to whatever the latest is.

Thanks for the help.

Check the GPU temps with this tool enable logging whilst playing Skyrim, I think the option is under sensor within that app. Also check for artifcats with this

Temps are within reasonable parameters. That's an EVGA tool, it's incompatible with my Asus HD 6850. I can try running Kombustor or something, I guess.

Why not just use MSI afterburner? The OSD works, you just need to create a profile.

I wish the OSD would work with me, but I think it's because I'm using Hayden's Eyefinity Fix too. I tried making profiles in the OSD server, but nothing worked. Now I just use AB's Remote Server and my smartphone with the AB app.

Has anyone used this mod: Warning - somewhat adult content (pg13?) (Click to show) it has been causing the loading screen image to show up in water and fog/clouds. It's just a clear out line but it's REALLY annoying.
does anyone know what could be causing this?

Also, if not, is there a mod that makes woman and skinnier people not look like dumb asses when they walk?
They all have their arms out like their supposed to be muscular.

Not sure but you can give women a more muscular body texture if it bothers you.

well it's not just the women, the skinnier men look weird too. i just figured Bethesda would have put this into account.

After well over 200 hours of gameplay I just came across a little Easter egg that I hadn't seen before, has anyone else come across this:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The Headless Horseman! I saw him outside near Dragon Bridge, he just rode by real fast, not stopping (and you can't kill him lol) smile.gif
