Artifacts show up as discolored, distorted pixels when playing 3d rendered graphics, nowadays anyways, they are caused by your GPU overheating most of the time, or a dying GPU, can you check your GPU temp? Onboard video chips aren't designed for more than just casual gaming, see if your Nvidia Controls will tell your GPU temp, otherwise you can try downloading a tool like Rivatuner to get your GPU temp, post back your temp if possible.

Do what Niverive said. Also, I've seen artifacts from badly seated cards. Obviously, first turn off your computer, then unplug the power cable and remove and reinsert your 7800 to make sure it is in all the way.

i know this is a little late but it is a good idea to press the power buttona few times after unplugging you power cord, this discharges any remaining power.
