Default weird graphics on my desktop

Hey guys,

recently i bought an ATi XFX 5770 and an LG W2453V. Lately i've been noticing on the right side of the screen, when i move windows near it, there is like a graphic corruption. The only way to explain it is, it look like long needles stabbing out from the right side of the screen, almost like static graphic corruption. I'm running windows 7 64. This doesn't happen when i'm gaming, ever, only in windows.

Now i don't know if my monitor is just wonky or my GFX card hardware is messed up, or if it's the crap ATi drivers.

I'm pretty upset with ATi right now, i'm mean it runs games awesome, but the drivers are balls, and they crash in win 7 all the time.

any suggestions?

*edit* it always happens when i minimize or maximize my windows, just slightly on the right side, you have to be paying attention to see it.

ok it has to be a GFX hardware or driver problem, cuz when i turn off windows aero or w/e, when i just switch it to windows 7 basic or classic, it goes away and i can't reproduce the bug.
