Describe your issue:

  • Nearly any game I play (I suspect any with 3D models) has lot's of graphical glitches and tearing... and seems like the more on screen the worse it is... maybe? I am not fully sure. But the games do great besides the other wise mentioned graphical problems. I just got this new graphics card and had the person who built the computer put it in for me as I don't know anything about building computers and don't wanna mess anything up.
  • Any game by the looks of it (Tested on 5 different games and only Rimworld wasn't affected at all. These include: Overwatch, Nights of Azure, Atlier Sophie, God Eater Ressurection)
  • Low of high settings, the result is the same.
  • Here's a video recording I made with Relive to show what the problem is: Help me fix my computer - YouTube  The green and grey boxes that flash only appear in the video, not when I play any games.
