my gigabyte 6600 gt agp, starting showing alot of artifacting today. i havent even done anything to it. now any game i play shows artifacts. i did overclock a bit, about 10-15 mhz on the core and memory. it was fine for about 8 months. i think my card just died or got damaged. maybe somethign to do with voltage or the BIOS. oh BTW i cant decrease my clock speed or overclock, it says test failed and that i have to decrease clock speed. i do but it stil says the same thing. :(

any suggestions or advice.

I have had several hardware deaths recently because of the warmer temps and the hardware being ran at higher speeds than normal. Wish I had remembered to lower the clock speeds on all the crap thats outside my room...

I've had to decrease my speeds on my GPU and my CPU because of heat. Can't afford to get extra cooling at the moment and last week here in the UK it reached 32c!!
