    That looks like the card is artifacting

    Do you have it overclocked ?

    If it is still in warranty, return it, likely a VRAM issue

    Agreed

    Check what PSU you have before you return the card.

    This is a long shot, but check that the cover that goes over the PCI-E slot has been taken off? I forgot to go this, and found it was stopping hot air being pushed out of the back of the case.

    i have an old (4 years old) alienware.
    anyway i didnt check inside the computer yet and you all seem to say thats where the problem comes from so i'll open it, clean everything and test again before i send it back.

    Thx for the advices.

    Definitely its a problem with the GPU Vram.
    Those are glitches, similar to those happening when you oc your card at higher values.
    Anyway since you're at stock clocks i think that the best thing to do is to RMA it asap.

    What game? If all then yes if in a certain game or two then it's more of a driver issue.

    This is what I have been saying for a long time, lots of these "catalyst 00.1 destroyed my pc" are often user errors (ie. not cleaning youre hardware now and then). I clean my pc atleast 2-3 times a year, because I want my hardware to be at max capasity.
