    That's what my 7900gt SC CO did before I RMA'd it and received an 8600gts.

    try the artifact scan with atitools first

    could be just the card getting too hot, make sure it's not overheating... although it would throttle back the clocks wouldn't it?

    did you remove the old video drivers properly with a driver cleaner before installing the new ones?

    I'll try it - it was a clean windows install, last time i updated the driver.

    Does the ati-tool work with nVidia cards?

    okey - ran ati tool for 30 min, tem jumped to 90 in a few mins. Took out the card and cleaned it wit preasurized air (tons of dust came out, the wife hates my bud for doing it inside, had to vacumclen and all - crap-) put the card back in and am running ati tool right now - 34 min, temp steady at 65 -)

    No artifact before or after, i'll see how it deals with games when the kids have been put to sleep.
