I have a gtx 570, had it a while now but past few months I keep getting artifacts every now and then. I have just been playing a steam game, not very taxing on the gpu but it uses all 1.25GB of VRAM, and my screen has started artifacting.
I have included a picture of my desktop as it is now, there is strange lines going up my screen and its been on going for past 10 minutes now. Anyone got any ideas what these artifacts are about?
My gpu is technically under watercooling, so temps havent been over 55C for months. I did think this was possibly down to bad OS, so reinstalled Windows recently. Evidently this didnt solve the problem.
I would be grateful if anyone has any ideas for this, its doing my head in. Oh also, a spanner in the works, this same thing has happened on my pc when using the onboard gpu too :/
edit: Im leaning more towards something other than gpu as it has happened with onboard too.
