    does anyone know how to fix it? I am aware it may be something to do with my graphics card.

    Seems to be something is overheating in your computer. Most likely the graphics card.

    Ventilate the card better or see if its fan is malfunctioning.

    Oh, hello Kio

    Btw, thats usually a sign of the GFX card overheating/starting to break. If it starts to detoriate graphics on your desktop and stuff, it means its time to buy a new card.

    and/or underclock your graphics card by about 50%, and see if it helps, if it does, clock it until it starts failing.

    Did you uncheck post processing effects in video options? Try lower the spell effect slider too. If it was overheating you'd see artifacting no matter what you were doing. When was last time you updated your graphic card drivers? If it's been awhile, might give that a shot too.

    Those are "artefacts" which are usually caused by overheating GPU (either overclocked too much or cooling is failing) or a broken one

    You can use this to check your temps.

    tbh, the card is less than a year old so its not breaking.

    The problem is that my computer is in a poorly ventilated room, and i usually leave the door closed otherwise my dog comes in and chews on stuff :z

    so i just need to get some better ventilation to cool it.
