Hmm make sure the case is properly ventilated and also get your chipset drivers if you haven't. I would try another set of video drivers just to see if they could be the problem, Make sure you uninstall the old ones first. Coul dyou provide some screenshots? Also does the PC work normally when not gaming?

Strange issue. Based on your specs you should be able to run moderate to high settings without any problems.

When you updated your drivers did you do a fresh install? Meaning, did you remove the drivers you previously had, restart, install new drivers and restart? If not you might try that. It doesn't sound like artifacting from heat or anything and if you're running low settings it shouldn't be heating up that much anyway.

I'd also suggest using some sort of software to monitor the performance of your GPU. Try and get a reading on how much usage you're getting and if you could get a screenshot that might help also.

Go into your graphics card settings (control panel > hardware > video card control panel) and under settings, make sure v-sync, or vertical sync, is set to be forced on.

The case has 5 fans and the temps are all good. All drivers where downloaded from manufacturers websites to make sure i had the newest ones, no need to uninstall old ones because there where none. I tried the v-sync but didnt help. Thanks for all the replies but i think im just gonna pay someone to fix it.

How do it play with other games? Same issue? And post a link to a screen shot of what it looks like.
