i think my video card is on the way out. is it? look at the attachments. if its not dying, whats the problem? anyone had this problem before? it only messes up in games, and almost all games.... never in programs, except for battlecraft 1942.... but i havent tried every program.

crap.... well i have to go in 50/50 on this with my dad... what is a good card for $130-$150? i might be able to do $170.. thats total price, not what i pay... are all-in-wonders reasonable for gaming if i also want the functions of it? i have to have something that will run upper games (hl2, doom 3, soon bf2) but want the video capture features without a seperate video capture card.

Have you checked to see if something (ie other software) isn't interfering with your drivers?
