Miscellaneous Texture Flicker

Bushes and gravel seem to randomly turn completely black as I move.

I recently upgraded my computer, and I can now run STALKER with absolutely no lag whatsoever. However, I seem to be having a lighting issue related to Full Dynamic Lighting; whenever I switch it to FDL, the vegetation and some textures such as gravel like to mess up their shading. Maybe 1 in 25 iterations of the texture goes completely black across the entire landscape. The really weird thing is that it changes whenever I move in the slightest; every time I move, a new set of bushes or gravel goes black. If this has already been addressed, please direct me to the fix, I didn't see it. Please note that this is NOT the shadow artifacts bug AFAIK; that one is taken care of. Thanks in advance for any help. And before I forget, I am running the STEAM-based STALKER SoC version 1.0005 with completely vanilla settings. I'm doing a run-through with the unmodified game and then with SC2009 installed.
