I have been having this color banding and texture issue in all my games I have been playing, and I can't get a fix for it. I don't know if its my video card or not, because I tried my onboard graphics and a Nvidia GTX 650 and the issue shows up too.

Diablo 3 Issue: http://fotos.fotoflexer.com/645ca4574d275e7d262abfb75711dd1e.jpg

Note: greens lines to show where issue is

I have read many posts about this issue on other forums, but no one every posted a resolution or fix.

The issues shown in Diablo 3 / Diablo 2 screens show up on multiple computers I have. Some are custom builds, Toshiba laptop, and Lenovo Desktop. 
The issue in Diablo 2 shows up on cinematics, loading screens, and startup logos, for almost all the games I own, but I have only tested those games on the computer I am using now.
Games:
Bioshock Infinite
Sanctum 2
Assasins Creed
Torchlight 2
Diablo 3
almost any Unreal Engine game

My current PC:
Asrock Z77 Extreme4
Intel i5 3570k
Corsair 750W
AMD Sapphire 7950 Boost
Corsair 8GB 
OCZ Vertex 120 GB
Monitor: ViewSonic VX2450

Could low end video cables be causing thse issues? I bought a few cables from Amazon that had good reviews. (HDMI to DVI / DVI to DVI)
