Default Diagnostic tool for video cards

I was wondering if anyone knew of a diagnostic tool i could run for my video card to see if there are any hardware problems. I was having my card artifact on me in supreme commander, forged alliance and took a hard performance hit a couple weeks ago. Finally got around to contacting EVGA and requested an RMA slip.
Played crysis on my comp yesterday and it ran just as well as it did when i first played it back in december. So my theory is that it might just be supreme commander or i took some minor heat damage because my GPU fan wasnt kicking in when it got too hot. Now i have the fan set to 50% constantly. I just want to know if there is something that can specifically test my card before i waste 40$ RMA'ing my card when its perfecty fine

Download and run ATITool and use the stress test at the bottom left corner to check your card. It will let you know if and when you have errors. Run it for 20 minutes. If it's a serious error you'll get a BSOD.
