I lately (before the driver and after the recent update) I have been getting this strange glitch on the desktop background. It only affects the background so I won't know until I close an application or window. The glitch is not consistent, because I can go a day or so and not see it, but when it happens, it just grows and grows in roughly the same horizontal area on the screen. Attached is a small video of the issue along with I hope is relevant information.

Maybe connected to this issue, but I can't play many games and I get crashes and horrible performance.

You can troubleshoot this by:
  • Underclock the memory using MSI Afterburner -> If the artefacts go away, you have GPU memory issues
  • Underclock the GPU
  • Put card in another computer and test
    • If good then try DDU and reload drivers, try different drivers
    • If problem follows to the other computer -> RMA
My guess would be vram corruption but can change the color settings to see if that makes a difference:
  • Open up Nvidia Control Panel
  • Go to Display -> Change resolution
  • Use NVIDIA color settings -> Try out different combo's

Thanks, I did some tests when I got home, it's a card issue. It starts to glitch out after running to 50c. RMA time. Hopefully they can do an exchange, if not I can run my 980ti again while waiting.

Thank you both again.
