Articfacts are the dots and slashes that are seen while playing graphically intense programs

artifacts are those stuff you get when your DVD or VCD player is playing a DIRTY disc

the little squares in wrong colors...etc

wow. why in God's name are you overclocking a 7800? The card can take anything you throw at it anyway.
