    I have been posting around trying to get an answer for this question. In all my games, old or new, I get twinkling between the seems of my textures. I once fixed it in the game Mafia, doing a lot of tweaking and turning on antialiasing, but am since able to fix it again. In old games like Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear I get the twinkling and in new games like Soldier of Fortune II Double Helix I get it between the seems. I can't seem to get it, is there a setting somewhere? The tweaker I am using is Rivatuner. Here are my specs:
    Windows ME
    ~800mhz
    512mb RAM
    Geforce 2 MX 400 64mb

    I also have everything turned off in the ctrl+alt+del menu except Explorer and Systray, and am running at 94% free resources. I can't seem to get it, please help if you can. Thank you.

    I would suggest just not worring about it and upgrading that GFX Card (I know I know take my own advice). But if your in the same situation as I am and dont have the money, hmm...make sure you have all the updated drivers, and if so try re-installing them.

    Another thing that could do it is OCing it too much. Drop down the OC a bit (assuming you have OCed it) and try that.

    Yea, he's right! That card is an absolute POS.

    [Memory] 512 Samsung PC3200 DDR400 w/ Copper Heatsink(s)
    [Video Card] Geforce 3 ti200 128 DDR Special Gold Edition

    [Northbridge] ThermalTake Crystal Orb
    [Southbridge] Aluminum Northbridge heatsink attatched

    Operating System:
    [OS] Windows XP Pro w/ SP1

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Hey, don't knock the GF2MX... I used one of them for a long time.

    One thing to try would be to tone down your overclocking a bit. When some GF cards get OC'ed too much, they will still work, but there will be 'artifacts' and strange things on screen.

    Agreed... even on the newer cards when I overclock the board too much I start seeing the white specks in some of the graphics. This will be from the core being set a bit too aggressively.

    um...yeah,
    I know the card is crap, but for starters as mentioned I don't have the money to buy a better and also I knew nothing about computers when I bought this one, which is almost two years old, and it is a PCI, not AGP. So I really can't get much better on the quality. Also, I am planning on saving up for a new AMD Athlon coputer and installing an ATI Raedeon or Geforce Ti card, something good. But that will take a while to save up for, they are about five hundred dollars and the card is about $100-150, plus I would also like to get a soundblaster card. Quiet, I can dream can't I? Thanks for the help. I haven't messed with my clock speeds, but the performance of my card was set to aggresive. I turned the performance to adhere to all application commands. Should I leave it on that or set it to a balanced performance? Thank you for the help, I hope this fixes the problem. About using the updated drivers. As I mentioned I had it perfect then DX 9 came out and so did the 43.35 drivers and I got them right away, big mistake. They didn't work too well. Since then I had to do a factory restore, and of course after I did the restore I found the fix for the problem. So my direct x is thankfully back to 8.1 and I set my drivers back to 41.09, which work good with m computer. Thanks, keep posting on anything else.
