Jus the description you are giving 'shimmering' reminds me of old memory or driver conflicts.

just going to verify the basics have been done, Have you booted to safe mode and used Driver Sweeper to get rid of your video driver before reinstalling the vid driver again? Also I assume you've also tried reinstalling Eve?

After that, if you have access to another video card, i suggest swapping it out to see if it clears it up.

What resolution are you playing the game at and your current in game settings?

Its also very difficult to see with that first video, I hardly see anything at all.

I didn't see the problems that you were indicating with the mouse and cursor because it displayed perfectly fine on my system.

Is there any difference in the files or are they all same?

I ran this one first ExeFile 2008-11-04 20-04-17-82 and downloading the 2 others as I speak.

I just finished watching the last 2 and I didn't see any video corruption it could what is being displayed incorrectly on your system is displaying correctly on mine.

I think its driver related what drivers are you using?

Is Eve online up to date with the latest patch and fixes?

What AA and AF settings are you using? you should be able to crank everything to full even with the premium graphics. That being said I'm not sure I can see what your trying to explain in the videos. Also have you tried the High Quality render mode for AF in the nVidia control panel, that should get rid of shimmering IF thats what it really is.
