Exclamation 7900gt question!>

Ever since i purchased the bfg 7900gtoc car last August i have had trouble with it putting brackets across my screen, but my computer will stay on. I have talked to the tech guys at BFG and they call this "Artifacting". They checked my voltage outputs and said it was fine, and couldn't think of what could be causing it.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? I dont think its driver related b/c i have the most recent updates and its not an heat isssue...... any ideas?
Their telling me to try another graphics card in my system and try my graphics car in another system.....dont really have time for that

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated

It's called Artifacts. The 7900GT that you have right there, is probably OCed but it's unstable. You can try to underclock it using the ATI Tool.

Woah, that's one crazy VGA then. Alright, I know people would suggest you to get Everest Home Edition, but you won't be able to check to see if you OCed your GPU on Home Edition [well it's to check how many % it has been OCed to]. Download the Everest Ultimate Edition and find Display, it will tell you all your Specs of your VGA.

You don't need to pay for it, just use the Trial Version.
