    [HELP] Graphics issue?

    I have a... fairly major issue. I've searched around google, yahoo, bing, etc to no avail.
    I seem to have a graphics issue on certain games. Mainly 2 things, Dead Rising 2, and UDK.
    I played Dead Rising 2 and I saw red dots on everything like it was contagious (haha) but it was only in dead rising. I tried other computer games, Assassins Creed II, Empire Total War, BFBC 2, Bioshock 2, Just cause 2, and I use FPS Creator. I have no problems running these applications on high quality everything runs smoothly, but Dead Rising 2 and UDK I get red dots on things that seem to be shades. Like shade pixels failing or something. I wanted to know what I could do about it, (if anything) and/or what version of UDK would be more appropriate for my system.
    System info below, as well as screen shot.
    More screenshots will be posted on demand.

    bump
    and as you can see here, its mainly a shading problem
    a map with sufficient light doesnt produce red dots. only in areas where theres shading

      I have a Radeon 4670 and don't have any graphics problems. Maybe you just need a better model of card. Is your GPU on the motherboard or is it a separate card? Usually on-board video isn't very good.

        This is a known issue with some ATI drivers. There isn't really much to do about it other than try different drivers or get a new card.

          This actually looks a little bit like your graphics card is unfortunately coming to the end of its life.

            Agreed. You may want to replace it before it "blows up" while your pc is running.

                Given my information above, could you guys suggest a compatible graphics card?
                I'd really appreciate it.
                Using newegg, i found some graphics cards but i dont know if theyre compatible.

                  Anything that's not 5 years old really.

                    You should go for a high number in either the Radeon 4000 series or 5000 series. The best 5000 series would be beastly. The 6000 series is available, but they're not actually better than the 5000. They're not worse, either, so just go for the best price (which will probably be the best of the 5000 vs best of 6000). Don't forget to read user reviews for the cards when choosing the best one. You can't always trust the ratings, though.

                      Working with UE3, Nvidia setups tend to be more reliable driver-wise.
