The processing system that you are using isn't working that well for the game. I have the same problem, and I got by it just by ignoring it. I don't really know how to fix this, but if you wait for a while, someone will come by and tell you how to. Hope this helps you a bit

It definitely looks like the card. It's either overheating and/or going bad.

You can try increasing the cooling on it and see if it works better, or works better on colder days, or works better at first but then goes bad after X minutes. That all points to either a component with the card that has popped a solder joint or chip going bad or possibly your entire cooling system for the card failing (bad fan, dust clog etc).

If you want to run a little stand alone program to max out your GPU and run your card up to max temp quickly as a test, Google for "FurMark".

If it seems to be temp related then try looking at your GPU cooling system. It could also possibly be drivers gone bad, try updating the drivers, that's free and easy (usually). Maybe even reseat the card. But generally, in my experience, once a card starts behaving like this, it just gets worse over time.

Looks like your video card is dying. Test your video card, and if you have to, buy a new card.

Well after 5 or so days of stress testing my graphics card and CPU,the tests showed everything was ok,and trolling the web and not finding anything there.I went to my ATI driver and deleted and downloaded a couple times and still was doing the same thing.I thought about it and came to the conclusion that it turned out to be i had updated my drivers the other day.I went to my ATI driver and did a rollback and so far everything seems fine and working so far.

Some drivers don't do the intended thing they're supposed to do. Glad you fixed it.

Drivers is the first thing I do when I see glitches on my screen, more so when I know for a fact that I only play Solo/Campaign games so I can't blame LAG for it.

Now, being said that, I have also learn that some beta drivers are not good or don't work well with some games. I have also learn that, sometimes, if I don't uninstall the driver correctly, I tend to do more harm than good.

I am glad you got your problems sorted but I don't think the rollback did the trick, I just think that the uninstall/install process didn't take, but, being said that, I also have a thing when it comes to drivers... IF IT AIN'T BROKEN, DON'T FIX IT
