There is artifacts and weird colors in the EA games i play like Battlefield Bad Company 2/Vietnam and Need For Speed hot pursuit. My graphics card and processor are at the right temperature so that can't be the problem. I have not overclocked the graphics card or processor.

The Need for Speed shot looks almost like an ATI Morphological AA glitch. Make sure CCC settings under 3D is set to "Use application settings", especially AA.

What videocard/drivers etc?

I have a Asus EAH5670 1GB GDDR5 and i recently updated to the latest ATI driver, this happen before i updated the driver. I had a look at the AA setting and the use application settings is already ticked but there is another box in the AA setting called Morphological Filtering. I forgot to mention that i contacted EA about this and the guy made me lower the game setting for BBFC2 which helped but still not exactly right. I am certain that when i first got the game which was set to high was working beautifully without those weird colors.

I hear you.

Only reason I brought up the Morphological AA was because I got the same purple/magenta/black colors in Borderlands.

Tried earlier drivers?

I have not tried earlier drivers yet. My other games which are from other makers all work fine except for EA games :blink: Do you reckon this is caused by the graphics card itself? Any ideas?

Edit: I decided to factory restore the settings for the graphics card and actually worked!! So i went fully maxed out BBFC2 and NFS graphics settings and it worked fine. I had a look at the ATI OverDrive and decided to try to overclock it from 775mhz to 840mhz and 1000mhz to 1040mhz which i tested it using the test clock speed on Catalyst which passed if i went any high it would fail the test. After overclocking i tested the games again and they were still normal :) So pretty problem solved :thumbsup:
