It is definately artifacts. My old card would do the exact same thing. I popped on a zalman cooler, of which there are several good ones, and my temps dropped 15C. I suggest looking on newegg for a zalman cooler, you can usually pick one up for $20-$30 which is pretty worth it.

Good news is you don't have a virus. And if you get better cooling, you will be able to get a better overclock too.

Good luck

Dude, just buy a 5200 for $40

No offence, but its somewhat sad that someone is still using an MX series card.

Most MX440s beat the 5200... my old one did, anyway.
