Yeah it's definitely artifacting. It's behaving really weird - the first 5 to 10 seconds after entering a game, my card artifacts like crazy, even on stock clocks. But after the few seconds, it's like it has never happened.
I went to do some experimenting - increasing the voltage while I had some 3D application running (such as ATiTool), and the artifacts would not appear. Even when I closed ATiTool, it would be perfectly fine. But if I changed the settings while I had nothing running, it would look really messed up.
Also when I have my cursor at the clock/tray area, my cursor artifacts like crazy and vibrates. Even if I add another monitor to the right of my main monitor it will only do it in that area of the screen. I even reinstalled Windows and it's still doing it.
I kinda hope it's a bad card since I originally wanted to get a 6870, but the place I bought it from were out of stock with 6870's. So if I can return it, that'd be awesome.
