Might be your graphics card that starting to die down.

I had a similar occurance with BF2 a year ago.

Strangely enough that's what caused me to have to go back to my laptop for a few weeks, which prompted me to try out WoT.

Yeah, looks like your graphics card is either overheating or about to die.

Seems good, but £135 for a 550W PSU? Get something around the £60 mark by Antec, Thermaltake, Zalman, Enermax, Corsair. OCZ

I'd then spend the money saved on a 120GB or 160GB SSD for your C: drive (keeping the 1TB HD as the second drive). My brother's got an SSD set up like this and it's crazy how much faster it makes everyday activities. The PC boots from cold to ready-to-run in around 12 seconds.

All I can say is that your GPU is having bugs, giving corrupted graphics.
Are the drivers up to date?

Memory or graphics chip is dying. Probably you just need to take the card out and put in again. Cold soldering point, try to put the card in an oven with 200 degrees for 30 minutes. Really works!

Solder doesn't melt(flow) until around 370 C .
Plastic will melt at 200 no problem though !

DO NOT put your card in the oven, do not listen to this guy, you'll definitely kill the card outright if you do that! But yes your card is dying, once you start seeing artifacts in games, seeing them in the operating system gui usually follows pretty quick! Have you been overclocking it perhaps?

What a crap. The oven-method is well known since about 10 years and it works. I just had a typo: The recommended temperature is 80-120 degrees celsius and 10-20 minutes. But there are some who did 200 degrees and 60 minutes. But 200 degrees and 10minutes should do the trick. Of course you need to take off all plastic parts.

It is not about melting solder. The theory behind it is that through the heat some materials "move" and establish contact again.

If you don't believe, don't write about something you don't know. Just search google for it and learn..

Of course that method isn't without risks! But it can work, you must know yourself if you want take the risk and try or not.

Another link where user describes it worked for him:

I'll tell you what , you do your thing and I'll do mine .
As for writing something I know nothing of , you better tell the UK ministry of defence for all that electronics work I did .

Just a little addition , materials moving , not melting solder , are you aware you described a dry joint ? :P

Did you read the links Sherlock? I don't care who you are or what you would like to be. The UK ministry obviously doesn't know this trick . Fact is this baking method works, read the links and be enligthened. Maybe you can teach your chef something :P Enough said.

Solder doesn't flow until 370° C? Seriously the UK ministry of whatever has a not very good educated employees.. A quick look on wiki says me different solder melts from 138 - 312° C, Sherlock.

Try reading my post please .
I did not say this wouldn't work , I said , you do your thing and I'll do mine .
Mine being based on my experience , including flowing Rohs approved lead-free solders .

You are very aggressive with your posts , so I'll leave you alone and let you find the online fight you are looking for .

Yes and the experience of 100s people (which you can read through google) that the baking-method works fine is worthless then? Seriously.. Don't write about something of which you obviously don't know anything. There is big difference between theory (of which you try to talk about) and practice.

When a video-card reaches TOs condition, what has someone to loose anyway? Either you throw it away or you try the baking-method, which could save you some money.

Mine is not theory , I reflow work all the time .
So , it is you who speaks from theory , I speak from years of practice .

The op would do well to take the card out to strip and clean the heat exchanger ..

Can I ask what your profession is , seeing as you talk about electronics in practical terms and patronise me with your clearly huge industrial experience .
So , go on , do tell .
