I have been worrying about my graphics card, just bought it, its about 20 days old. I want my card to last. Anyways, on startup, before entering windows, right after loading I will always get artifacts, very often small, like a line or part of a line, sometimes big, color flashes on the screen forming huge bars (always horizontal). As well whenever the gpu is under load, I will hear high pitch squealing, like steam under a sheet of plastic wrap forcing through a tiny hole. Aside from the obvious audio annoyances, is this a tell tale sign of a card that will fail before expectancy? My card is not overclocked, and the temperatures are well below maximums. What is your opinion? Is there something you would test to be sure if the card is fine or faulty? Thanks for any help.
