Possible causes of artifacts and BSOD?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a XFX 5870 installed on one of my media PCs but it seems to be showing artifacts and occasionally BSODs.

What are the possible causes of these issues? The card was previously used in another system, ran fine.

Could it be faulty?

Nevermind fixed it by flashing to an updated BIOS.

Thanks
