Alright guys, so here i'll give you a little info on my current situation.
Usually, i leave my computer turned on all the time 24-7, but on somedays i'll give it a break and shut it off. Now i have 2x9800GTX's running in there. So one day i decide to play Need For Speed Undercover. It plays fine, until i start getting this random colors poppin everywhere in triangles & squares, you know the type of colors you'd see on a tv if the connection was snapped.
Anyone tell me whats going on, would be much appreciated=)

That's artifacting. Disable SLI and see if it still happens. If so, then try new drivers, the 182.08 are the newest. Monitor your temps, they should be kept under about 85c.

It might be one of the cards or both are overheating, get them out of the case and check them for dust, and clean them if nessecary. Dust can really warm things up in there


If they still overheat you could also turn up the fanspeed, which is mostly set pretty low on stock.

If the problem persists try them one by one and see which one artifacts, and RMA it as it's probably gone bad then.
