"Artifacts?" Or some other graphics error on x1900xtx

    This is an example of the "artifact, game mess-up etc." I get in every game I've tried so far plus 3dmark. This could be sitting still like it is in the picture, or flickering, moving with the camera, disappearing when the camera moves...etc...This gets very annoying, My specs are in my profile. Some people are telling me this is basic artifacting due to power shortage or too much heat. If the power shortage is the case. how would I go about fixing that considering my PSU is good, so I'd have to change some settings or soemthing

    What brand and wattage is your PS? Ive seen rendering errors like that with faulty cards but it could also be a driver glitch since that card is so new.

    For what it's worth, a week or two ago I installed an Asus EAX1900XTX card but so far have not had that problem (or any other graphic problem for that matter). I'm currently using the 6.2 Catalyst Control Center (XP Home).

    That happened to me a lot in BF2 on my old 9800 pro when it got too hot, try running the case with the sides off... if that helps its heat, if it doesn't,
