Please post a screen shot. It sounds like artifacting. HAppens to me when vid card is overheating.

Make sure your vid card fan is spinning. If your vid card does not have a fan you might consider getting one.

Also I have had problems in the past with some drivers causing spots. Try updating your vid card drivers and if the problem still persists or you ahve new drivers try uninstalling new drivers and try switching back to the old drivers.

Also make sure the game features are compatible with your card.

if your card is softmodded or overclocked, this could be causing the problem. john carmack said something about doom 3 reacting differently when overclocked than other games, because it uses parts of the video card that most other games don't

http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/ This *WILL* fix your problem.... as strange as it sounds. download that program take the slider bar and underlock your card a wee bit. Default speed is like 350. take it down to like 340. (You'll see when ya download it) It will fix it. And I know what you're thinking... underclock my super duper card?! Believe me... it will still work fine.
