i had a previous PSU of 650W i had a trouble with it being underpowered and i founf that out on another post on these forums that i had to get a new one and the new one is the 1000 watt one. But i still now am having problems in games with the textures as i previously posted that image you can see. I dont know if the underpowered psu for a while screwed my vidoe cards up... man i am really confused becuase i can type and stay on my desktop fine its jsut when i enter a 3 d app like a game.

Your +12V reading of 9.93V is way too low. It should be between 11.4 and 12.6V on a healthy PSU. This is a known cause for graphics artifacts like yours in 3D fullscreen mode.

To confirm this reading check the voltages in BIOS, and during gameplay with some other monitoring software like PC Wizard or Everest. Alt-tab out of the game to see the readings. Doing it this way will give more accurate figures than closing down the game first.

Also, monitor the graphics card temperature during gameplay with nTune.
