Whenever i use the bracket key to resize a brush i have an issue. When i shrink the brush it breaks into many small circles in a line and when i make the brusher larger it forms an X then is broken around the edges. This has happened on multiple computers that i use.

Try disabling OpenGL. Go to Preferences>Performance... and uncheck "Enable OpenGL Drawing" then restart Photoshop. Does the problem go away?

This document will give you more things to try, but if you're happy with OpenGL off and don't use the 3D features, you're probably good to go.
