Long story short I gotta new graphics card. I went from an HD 4890 to an HD 6950, unlocked the shaders and OCed to a 6970. Nevertheless I'm now encountering an issue where various textures fail to load, or the game just loads the low-res textures. I've tried various combinations of settings in the options and CCC but can't seem to fix this issue. I've tried the various fixes for other ATI cards, but the only things I can't seem to find is the "mipmap" setting in CCC.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled the AMD/ATI 11.11 drivers to no effect.
Anyway, this is what I'm encountering:
The textures will be low-res one second:
Then switch to normal high-res:
And then back to low-res....or they get worse:
Its happening to a variety of textures:
Here are my settings:
Most of the time when I'm in first person, my player textures are fine:
But switch to third person and bam, low-res:
