    First off, I think this belongs in the Video Cards forum.

    Secondly, Do you have adequate case airflow/cooling?

    Okay, Is the Vcard's heatsink HOT to the touch? It has an Active cooler on it I hope.

    i havent touched it....i can try......but cooler? i just think its got a fan on it....if thats what you mean....its only a gf4....not an fx!

    i also get weird horizontal lines cross landscapes in games.....i think that is connected to the white pixels.....

    Thats called Arti-facting, and that means maybe your card is bad. Try undoing the tweaks you did to it and see if that works.
