Can you try using a different graphics card ? That's the best way to test one.
The only other graphics card I have is also broken, and it's twice as bad, it's not even decent, it's got maximum dx8 with pixel shader 1. :(

Try running a 3d benchmark program, like 3dmark. If it fucks something up there (with or without underclock), then that should confirm the broken status...

I got 2580 3DMarks running at the default clock speed, nothing messed up or anything, so I don't understand why I'm having problems with warsow...

Oh yes I used 3DMark 05 because I didn't have enough ram for the latest one.

Did you update your drivers as previously said by random salad ?

Yeah, but I reverted back to the latest NGO ones because the sprites were messing up again as I said in my other thread about drivers.

The latest optimised NGO driver revision for nVidia cards is 2.15822, which is based on nVidia's 158.22 drivers.

The 158.22 drivers were intended for GeForce 8 cards, whereas the 94.24 driver revision is the officially latest drivers available for GeForce 7 and below.

That doesn't mean however that the 158.22 drivers couldn't work just as well with a non-GF8 card, but it could still be worth testing.
