every now and then those pixel thin but entire screen wide black lines blink on my screen... or some sort of graphic glitch will happen like that... :/

would you guys think its more graphic card related or monitor related?... or something else?

my 19" kds flatscreen has a res of 1600x1200 @ 60 hz and my msi geforce fx 5700 w/ 256 mb is running the following; 2d clock: 300 mhz, 3d clock: 425, memory clock: 500 mhz... and Im pretty sure those speeds are slightly slower than what was advertised on newegg when I bought it... of course now this model isnt up so I cant show you

Ive been going easy on the new card but I was gonna start overclocking my processor, I think Ill wait now... :/... I think all this might be hard on the monitor (maybe it cant take this res and refresh rate) as well as being combined with this graphic card... its been through a lot

oh damn... somehow dot was enabled in my msi clock properties... O.o ... well its turned off now, maybe that was the problem... Ill restart and tweak later, until then any ideas anybody?

I really want a 6800 gt... college has left me broke and will continue to do so... :/

no ideas?

I disabled the msi dot feature (dynamic overclocking technology) that was somehow enabled for my graphic card... I thought disabling it would fix it but every now and then a black line or other graphic mishap will happen

as I said before my speeds are reported as: 2d clock - 300 mhz, 3d clock - 425 mhz, memory clock - 500 mhz... I thought that was just barely stock speed, if not slower than advertised but Ive been seeing things that make me think my memory speed is actually pretty high... O.o

can anyone tell me their memory clock speed and whether theirs is overclocked?... ESPECIALLY if you have a geforce fx 5700

I dont mean to bump this thread but this problem is getting annoying and Ive googled quite a bit and the only solutions are the same old things I hear over and over and they dont work... so Id like a fresh approach...

Look in my sig to see what Ive had, but Im currently running 520 core and 1020 memory. I clocked it back down because I just wasnt seeing that much of a performance difference over what I have now. I probably should update my sig but I leave it that way so ppl can get an idea of how well this card overclocks.
