Hi. Can you please tell us what video cards produced these images.

And would you kindly stop making simplistic replies and topics and would you kindly contribute more?

Sorry if I'm insulting anybody, if I am then I will kindly delete this post.

Taylor i support you 😃 lol.  Unknown is just making one sentence topics

asking people to post up pics or things -.-. These threads are

pointless, but one or two won't hurt(How ever most of your threads are like this -.-)

 

By the way i would really like to know what video card did the first image and how... :)

I already figured out two things by looking at the image. First thing, it's a driver bug that's causing the water and parts of the geometry to not render properly and it's a source bug that's causing the weird visual effects and the text corruption. Graphics cards never fail, and when they "fail" they just produce video artifacts and freeze up, not produce stuff like what you see in the screenshots, and that's likely due to the card dying, due to the card not getting enough power and due to the card overheating. My guess, the guy should update his drivers and see if it fixes the issue.

Also, I rarely create threads around here since I mostly see no reason to but they are not as pointless as Unknown's, if you look through my post history you'll see that I only created about 2-3 topics.
