What Kind of Artifacting?

It will start from the very center of the screen and work it way outward in lines and triangle shapes. Then it will get really bad and the hole screen will start artifacting in all different shapes and sizes and carry the image over in kind of a reoccurring pattern.

I tryed hitting prntscrn to take a Screen shot but when i went into paint to try and paste it, it just was a black screen

Thanks again guys for your speedy responses!!

Interesting, that's a long wait.. at least 4 months by the time the upper mainstream cards come out and the prices settle a little
Your current PSU is a Seasonic SS-600HT right?

yeah print screen captures what should be displayed, which may not necessarily be what is actually displayed. I'd try reinstalling the latest drivers, possibly bump up the Vcore on your GFX card to see if that might fix it

don't have time right now to look it up, but for some reason I think I remember the Galaxy version of the 460GTX consuming some 100w more than a reference 460GTX, so who knows may the PSU is a little lean.
Thats what Im thinking, cuz ive heard of ppl with 460's getting weird articats in the beta but not final release.

If thats true xandypx it would make sense because before I only had the 8pin 24pin and GPU 2x6pin power connected but on the ASRock board there is an extra 4 pin power connecter and when i plugged that in the artifacting went down a bit, was not as bad as it was without that pluged in. however still present.

Well, these are 6-7 year old units, something could have failed.. and honestly that shouldn't be a surprise

My bet is also on some driver issue/conflict.. either way, before you spend 200$ on a new PSU that you simply do not need, at least not now, you can get a 20$ multimeter and simply measure the voltages you get from the PSU, that Will settle your dilemma and spare you a lot of cash.

Money isn't the issue here, its being able to play BF3

Plus Its to late I already ordered it from Newegg, it was just to damn sexy looking.

You dont think I damaged my new Mobo or CPU tho do you?? Yikes

Really doubt it's a psu issue you have plenty of overhead, as said before chances are it's a drivers issue... have you tried different in game settings Try turning it down and difff rez see if anything changes (in bad company 2 when I enabled post processing on my 260 the game would flicker... ) If the issue still appears then it's your vid card that's starting to fail... BTW in bad company 3 there is virtually no gain of having a dedicated physics card.

Let us know but i'm sure it's not your psu... Good luck...

P.S. just had a great idea just go at an electronics store like best buy and get a decent videocard and test your system with it... then once the test completed return it... unless you have someone that can lend you a card... then you will know what your issue is...

Well, the fact that the artifacts toned down after you plugged in the additional ATX 4pin along side the EPS 8pin connector tells a few things.. but unless you start measuring voltages we can only speculate..
However, both the ATX 4pin and EPS 8pin feed only the CPU and not the entire board, which can mean a few things, either you have some regulation problems that the CPU VRM can't cope with or something else is wrong with the connectors on the mobo and/or the PSU.. because it shouldn't need more power than the EPS 8pin can provide.. in fact it should be well inside the power envelope of the EPS 8pin even at 5Ghz.. what CPU voltage are you using for that 4.8Ghz OC?
