8600gt then 8800gt
First, nothing is overclocked.
OK, so I was artifacting with the 8600gt in games like Civ4 so I grabbed an eVGA 8800gt from Futureshop last night for $119, how could I resist, and I figured it would solve the problem. It didn't still artifacting.
Next, I swapped in a Corsair 620hx, and that didn't solve the problem.
Then I ran memtest for 10 hours, no errors.
I am at a loss now, what next?
There is no way I have two bad videocards, in fact I don't as they both run great in my own system, and the Corsair is perfect as it came out of my own system.
Any ideas where to go next in my pursuit of the ability to run Civ4??!!!
No, it is everything, Civ4 is just a pretty simple graphical game that the 8600gt should run like a dream. It is also HL2, TF2, Diablo2, and Supreme Commander which came with the 8600gt, all on the lowest graphical settings.
Does it do this with all driver versions?
Too bad your mobo only has 1 pci-x slot.
I'd suggest flashing your mobo's bios with the latest. A new one was released on the 5th for your mobo. ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-
