Hello, I have problem in games (2 screenshots in the attachments, Age of Conan), there is this strange white (things) particles as you may see in the back of the minion (red flesh thingy) in the 1st picture , and in the 2nd picture there is the same problem on the water and the waterfall. I tried to change the settings from NVIDIA control panel but did`t fix it, tried to restore default settings but also did`t work .
how can I fix this ?, I also feel there is somthing wrong because when i set up my pc 3 months ago it was great since it`s high end (GPU BFG 285 GTX) 6g ram, etc. but after that i feel somthing changed, like in CSS FPS was 299 but then changed to 200+\\100 and drops to 60. whats going on ?.

Attachments aren't working, try hosting them on imageshack.us

I've got what sounds to be the same problem. I was suggested to try a different video card or ram. Since I just changed out the gfx card a month ago, I doubt it's that but I'm trying new ram when I get home today. I'll let you know how it goes.

CSS fps is all over the place, don't worry too much about it. Your monitor can only output 60 frames a second, so if it's above 60 fps you won't see any difference other than in the net graph.

I hope we could find a fix for it, and about CSS am not talking just about the number in the net graph , I noticed a big difference in the game play i feel there is like a lag (though i don`t have any connection problem), also the present problem that you also seems to have, all prove to me more that there is something wrong in my pc (uninstalled and reinstalled the graphic card driver multiple times but same same).
Here is the pictures

there was an update to age of conan a couple of weeks ago.. i had the same issue with my 285.. but it had to do with the dx9.. i switched to DX10 beta and it works fine.. you have to make sure that your shadows are maxed out.. pretty much everything has to be maxed out if not you will get very odd suqare patches of shadows and odd lightning effects. it might be a driver issue that nvidia needs to check out but after runing dx10 is perfect. BTW this is a masive game.. maybe you have corrupt data. reinstall maybe =(

since my pc supposed to run the game smoothly I switched to dx10 test from the game options and maxed out everything, graphics better but the problem is the same.
I just uninstalled and reinstalled the game few days ago, but ok will uninstall and install it again.

am glad you solved it, unfortunately I don`t know any 1 near who play games or atleast have a decent ram, so I`ll have to buy me 4-6gb depends on the budget, before that i`ll return the ram to it`s original stats before I overclocked it, maybe it`ll work out.

I remembered something, a week ago I was trying to play Lineage 2 (private server), logged in to the characters but the background is kinda missed up and I can`t see the character (though the menu I can see it) just 3d is missed up, I thought its a private server related issue, but now with age of conan I got the same issue when I log in to the characters screen my character and the background is missed up I just see, ah well it`s hard to explain I just uploaded the screenshot

also see the black in this cinematic intro

http://img127.imageshack.us/i/dx3.jpg/ <=- look at the floor

seems like a format is needed, faster than trying for days especially that it seems it`s either a screwed up graphic card driver that uninstall reinstall simply can`t fix it, or dx10 problem which I can`t seem to find a way to uninstall it and reinstall it. am sad that am gonna spend 2-3 days reinstalling stuff again after the format. will post the result after am done.

finished installing windows and age of conan and played it for few minutes tweeking in the settings. good thing is the colors problem was fixed now the cinematic intro and the game looks fabulous. back to the white artifacts, it`s still there but when I changed a little in the settings it disappeared ! the red minion of mine was perfect (1st & 2nd pictures in the above post). but it got back when I just jumped (not me, my character
), and was`t able to fix it even though the settings are maxed out. I hope some one could find how to fix it , it`s one of the settings in the game.
manolith And angrysasquatch, I would appreciate if you guys screenshot your settings since you both fixed it.

Tried exactly like yours but still did`t go away. for now I maxed everything out, you did`t check the 1st 2 options under dx10 tab and I did. also the underwater caustics Ultra. Godray 100%. and under the basic tab, Anti-alias 16 xQ. FPS is decent 45
. Maybe later on tomorrow or the day after i`ll oc my graphic card and see how much the fps goes up.
about the white artifact I guess i`ll have to live with it. Thanks manolith and angrysasquatch.
