Borderlands 2 gfx prob
 
Can anyone explain what's happening to this system? Taken with a PNY GTX660Ti, after a few minutes of playing, no overclock, in WinXP, 4gb ram on an Asus Rampage Extreme motherboard, with a Soundblaster sound card installed too that apparently works ok.

Posted for a friend, was apparently running ok just before this was taken. The video card was just installed a few weeks ago, running the 306.81 drivers because it did some other "weird square blotches" on the 310.70 and a fresh install of XP, with Borderlands copied over from his backup steamapps.

Power supply is a 1000w, HW monitor said peak gpu temp was 78C. His system ran the game fine on a 4870x2 before this, at 1024x768. CPU is dual core intel E8600 3.3GHz.

He entered the special 8bit mode.
But seriously, did he check the temps?

He's even getting this with a new gtx 670, and updated the mobo bios as per PNY's suggestion. Any ideas if it's still software or could it still be a hardware thing?

Could the 3.0 interface on the GPU be conflicting with the older slot on the mobo? How likely is it that an old motherboard would be so incompatible with a new GPU that it could cause this? But it didn't seem to cause issues like this with the 4870.

If there's no feasible ideas, might as well delete this thread.

I'm finding it strange that the HUD is still perfectly fine. Are you sure it's not part of the game or something? Does this happen with other games?

No other game yet. Tonight he updated direct x and it was better, lasted alot longer in a 2 player game, then when a 3rd person tried joining, it started to fail again he said.

an aquatence on another forum is having Heat issues and getting reboots with this game but not any of the other games he plays I would also check the temperatures.
