Default Artifacts?

Noob alert.

What's an "artifact" with regards to video cards? I read a lot of posts mentioning them, I'm assuming its some type of anomaly in the display?

Cheers
Cub

yep its caused by overheating....you dont have to overclock you card to make it over heat....just make sure you have nice airflow to your card and no dust is clogging the fan (if you have one)

Cards can also have artifacts if the manufacture had a bad batch where the cards at stock settings are actually too high and cause artifacting. If that happens you could RMA it or underclock it, but you should RMA it if it does.
