The 10.5 fixed that for me and a lot of other people


Redhead - Did you install the drivers from the disk first and then upgrade to 10.5 or did you go straight to 10.5? If you did the driver disk first did you use driver sweeper and make sure to eliminate all reminents of the previous driver before upgrading? Mind you I rarely do that, usually just install one driver on top of the other and havent ever had issues stemming from it however some swear by the need to do it especially if you are having issues

When I upgraded I uninstalled the old driver in device manager and then installed ccc 10.5. And I am beginning to notice some artifacts, but my card is not nearly as high clocked as others I've seen here on OCN. Think I'm going to upgrade the mobo bios and see what happens..

If the bios doesnt work try a full uninstall of the drivers followed by a driver sweeper run and do a clean install of 10.5, if that doesnt work try 10.4, some people have had issues with 10.5. If you have trouble digging them up let me know I have every driver since 10.1 (and some before that) saved in my HDD
