no artifacts or anything like that. what happens is, the screen freezes(no artifacts or anything, just like looking at a screenshot) then my sounds starts to chop really really hard for about ten seconds. the chop gets worse and worse until finally, my screen turns one solid color(black or white usually, one time i was watching a movie and it happened and my screen turned the color of the persons skin that was on screen) and the sound stops completely. then it just sits there until i hard reset it. then when i boot back up it says windows has recovered from a fatal error. and i check blue screen view and it says i bsod'ed. my card is clean. i am really good about dusting out my pc and i dust it out every month.
