My System Specs

Default GTX 760 Graphical Bug: Black/White lines all around screen.

I have owned my 760 for about 3-4 months now. About 3-4 weeks ago, I have been getting very annoying graphical glitches in plenty of games that I play. There are white/black lines flashing on and off on several textures.

I have tried...
- Updating drivers (including beta drivers, clean installations, etc)
- Re-seating the card (and tried a different PCI slot)
- Making sure the card is dust free
- Re-installing Windows (2 times)
- Different harddrive
- Tried running in compatibility mode (and mobo default settings, and with new and old BIOS's)
- Changing game settings (Power usage, V-sync, etc)

I am positive the problem has to do with the GPU chip itself, or perhaps the shaders or whatnot.

I would glad to take any advice, or options I can go forward with. The Nvidia user forums haven't been much of a help.

This looks like a bad GPU to me. If its overclocked, try running stock. If its stock, RMA it.

I'm using a Samsung SyncMaster S23B300. It's most likely a memory issue within the card. Since I am getting the same problem on every game it runs.

Stock, and I think RMA is what I'll have to end up doing. Never RMA'd a product before, but I understand it is pretty straight foward.

Yep. Gfx issues similar to this (Squares, rectangles, weird colours, etc) are almost always bad GPU related.

I wish you luck on your Gigabyte RMA. My experience with them was terrible, so bad in fact I've boycotted them until I hear of a turn-around. You'll find a lot of bad experiences from them in Canada. Oh, and be ready to shell out $ to ship it to their RMA in the states...

looks like he has the Gigabyte windforce model v 2.0, for a short period of time I had that model myself, most of the time it was staying clocked at 1215MHz 62kPPD at that speed.
