Ok peeps, I just wanna throw this out and see what you all think. I just bought this GF4 MX440 about a week ago, and it has been acting weirdly. When I run any 3D games, the graphics look bad. The edges of walls and corners seem to flicker and look ripped. Sometimes, the edge of one wall will stick through the other wall. Does this mean my card is dying/crap? I did OC the card and the AGP bus a little, (270/400 stock @ 320/480 and AGP @ 70Mhz), but would that little of an OC do that much damage?

Ok, here is a screen shot of the Unreal Tournament 2003 demo benchmark. As you can plainly see, the graphics are very bad. This was done using the 30.82 dets, stock clocks (270/400), stock driver settings, Duron @ 1.26Ghz (12.5x101). I think my card is dying, how about you guys?

Well you were right, I changed drivers from the 30.82s to the 40.72's and the problem went away. Thnx for the help!
