    hello

    Does your card require a seportate external power source, if so make shore its connected

    is the card fermly down in the slot

    try the omega drivers as it may be the problem www.omegadrivers.net

    if those fail your card could be overheating

    take the panel off your case and put a fan blowing in and see if it helps

    uninstall your old ati drivers and install these as imo they are better\more stable
    and could be the answer if not try the fan thing i told you about

    if none work send it back for a new one

    For some reason, 90% of all the artifacts have somehow disappeared, and the remainder aren't that noticable.

    however, now when i load up WoW, certain objects will sometimes flash around and spike...like the text at the sign in screen where it shows the version and buildings in the game will sometimes form into a spike shape and flash around, same for other objects...

    any idea on this?
