Whelp, enough feedback says it's likely the drivers, so off I go to install the old ones.

Yeah, it seems to be luck of the draw. Some have good luck with nVidia and back luck with AMD, or vice versa (or maybe some have good or bad with both).
I haven't used ATI/AMD for a long while for GPUs myself, so I can't say, but a Radeon X1550 I got for my parents PC did cure them of their Intel IGP having this very issue in Windows Vista years back, so I can't say anything bad about it. nVidia was also all but flawless for me until this one.

That's not some sound news. I hope the 28x.xx WHQL ones don't end up inheriting this issue. Maybe I'll hold off of updating right away.
