I'm fooling with memory now, hopefully that works. Specs:

250 series is 9800 with a new sticker and a bios update. 9800 is an 8800 made with a smaller (55nm instead of 65nm) process. Only real difference in your old card and new card is a small jump (128 vs 112) stream processors and a bit more ram. They're basically the same card, sorry

I tried about 5 different driver versions with no luck. Unfortunately it made the game unplayable for me, so I had to cancel my sub and uninstall it.

I've had similar issues with my 260 GTX card. It seems to mostly happen during ground missions. I've found lowering the bloom helps, as does reducing the anti-aliasing.

Since it doesn't do it to any other game except Champions Online, I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't a Cryptic problem with nVidia cards?

I have had this happen only twice, and both times it was when I was loading into the game at the character selection screen. The first time was quite a while ago, right after STO launched. The second time was this morning. A reboot resolved the problem both times. I am running a GTX 295 with the 196.21 drivers.

I honestly don't play anything else besides STO on the machine right now; so I can't comment on other games.

Just thought I would add my name to the list of concerned users.
