So recently I have started getting these white fuzzy blotches all over my screen when I do certain stuff. It first happened when I tried playing SpecOps The Line and since it wasn't happening in any other games, I wrote it off as just the game and my system not agreeing for whatever reason. Then a little of it started happening in Far Cry 3, occasionally appearing for a moment then going away. Then I booted up some other games and it happened in one here and there. Arkham City for example.
My thoughts were that maybe my video card was fucked. So I brought it to the place I purchased it. They tested it and said it was perfectly fine. So I figured I'd wait and see, and that maybe I was just having bad luck with certain games.
Other games were fine, like Borderlands 2, Dishonored, XCCOM, and recently Tomb Raider.
Except now I'm seeing a little of it in Tomb Raider as well. Only when I'm examining relic collectables, otherwise nothing.
But everything has just gotten a lot worse. I'm getting it in pretty much every non game I have now. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Steam, and other programs are getting this fuzz. It eventually goes away until I open something else or browse to another Internet page, then it starts up again.
I'm getting worried. If my video card is okay then what's happening?
