    My Nvidia 7900 GT (Made by EVGA) has been acting up more and more, I have went to the nvidia site and downloaded the most recent drivers, and I still get random green-ish pixils, more predominant on dark colors, help!! lol, its gettin worse.

    Please post the specs for your power supply including a link to the unit if possible. Also, a link to the card at the eVGA website would be helpful.

    The power supply specs seem to have enough power, but I couldn't get to the eVGA link you posted, just got an error message that the PDF file was damaged and could not be fixed.

    Have you tried another monitor with your machine to see if the problem prevails on another monitor?

    Naw, that's a diff card, mine's a GT. Correct me if I am wrong but, my link takes you to the site's PDF of my card's speccs, though it is not on sale through them anymore, nor newegg... :( Prolly faulty or something.. I dunno.

    My first guess on something like this is overheating.

    That card should have temperature monitoring built in. In the display options for the card, there should be an area where you can check the temp. Nvidia cards of that generation, 7x00, can typically idle at temperatures in the 50-60 degree celsius range without causing too much concern.

    However, if that card idles at temps exceeding that, then there could be a problem.

    Immediate solution: blow the dust out from inbetween the fins of that card's heatsink and fan.

    I can't seem to find the temp gauge, any suggestions on where it would be?

    Did the weird greenish pixels show up when you tried that?

    When do you usually see those artifacts? Like how long into play, or during which games? What does it usually look like?

    I have had the same problem with my PNY 6800GT and CSS. I had purplish pixelations. All you need to do is MAKE SURE your using the newest drivers and make sure your not over clocked. If the problem reoccurs. Try loading another game and see if it does it with that one. If not. Reinstall WoW because your settings could've got messed up.

    Yup, that's it, any ideas??? Should I have the drivers from nvidia, or EVGA? One of my friends was telling me there is a way to flash nvidia bios on the card and that should eliminate a lot of the issues.
