Sounds like a similar issue to another thread so I'll quote myself.

I fixed it by unchecking the advanced settings check box in STOs graphic settings and the moving the quality slider all the way down, then all the way back up again.

The problem comes back any time I mess with view distance settings, hence why I assumed it was running out of VRAM loading all the distant detail textures, but I only have a 512mb card.

Hope that works for you!
Side note, if it IS a VRAM issue and it seems like it may be, it also seems to be a result of a recent patch, this may be a worthy of a bug report if any more people experience the issue and its fixed in a similar way.
