    MSI GTX 460GTX Hawk + 3 Screens giving a fine "mesh" like glitch ?

    Right so ...

    I've noticed the past few days that both in game, and out of game (Windows like the ones from explorer, games, ....) when I move a window or when in a game something moves "fast" that I get this ...
    black dotted mesh. Looks a bit like carbon or something across the edges.

    Also, when moving around the windows windows I can see the edges of the applications / windows go cartled / corrigated around the edges when I move it, to crisp clean again when I stop moving it.


    Now I don't recall ever having this problem so i'm wondering if someone knows what this is ?

    Is this just a setting I tabbed on by accident somewhere or is this a windows settings or ... ? cause it's subtle but driving me insane ...


    System is:

    Intel I7 950
    Gigabyte UDR3R rev 2 x58 Motherboard
    2x MSI GTX460 Hawk - Talon Attack
    8Gb of Kingston value ram
    a OCZ Onyx SSD.


    So again, anyone able to enlighten me on what this is and if I can "fix" this ?


    cheers

    YEs I'm running 3x 22" illyama's.

    Final resolutions of 5760 x 1080.

    I've switched suspicion to the fact that with such high resolutions it's somehow trying to apply anti-alaising and failing or that is causing the glitches.

    No idea / not sure though.


    Reset the drivers all to factory defaults and the issue was still there.

    Waiting for some cabling myself to hook up my triple 23" HPs to my 580. I'll try the 460 in my other machine as well, but I'm not sure if it can even drive all three by itself, not SLI like yours. Just for laughs, try underclocking the Talons a bit, maybe down to 780mHz where the Hawks run at. Those errors sound like the kind of weird stuff that happens when a GPU is overclocked too much.

    nah it doesn't have to do with overclocking.

    It's either something inheritly about the tripple screen setup, or its a option I'm missing.

    It does it even when just moving windows in the OS itsself.

    So for my, either its something I'm missing or its something "normal" and I should just live with it (rather don't)
