Ok, so here's my issue. I bought an XFX ati 5770 XXX series card, I asked XFX if the Juniper XT version would work in crossfire with it (i figured it would but just to make sure I asked them). Of course they said yes, the overclocked version will just downclock to match the gpu of the XT version. Anywho, I purchased this second card, put it in my machine and now I see artifacting in games. BAD artifacting that is, I then switched my cards around to see if it was the slots or even if it was because the wrong one was primary. No go nothing worked, XFX says it sounds like a mobo issue (which isn't the case) I called asus and they said it wasnt a mobo issue. Anywho the weird part is that, it only happens when the game is in focus. If I alt-tab out of the game and i'm able to see the game in a window unfocused it works flawlessly (but i cant play the game because its out of focus). I've ran myself up the wall troubleshooting and have no idea what it could be.

My specs are as follows:

i7-930 2.8
P6X58D-E LGA 1366 INTEL X58 SATA 6G
Rosewill Xtreme Series RX950-S-B 950W
3x2gb G.Skill PC2000 1.6v DDR3
XFX 5770 XXX series
XFX 5770 Juniper XT
Winblows 7 (It was my ****ing idea)

P.S. XFX takes forever to respond and its irritating.

What driver? Try 10.8 with 10.8 crossfire profiles. Also, before you install them, make sure you uninstall the old drivers, reboot and then use driver sweeper to compleletly remove the old drivers, then reboot again before installing 10.8.

Also, try disabling Catalyst AI and turning all effects to "application controlled"

whats so different about 10.4 or 10.5? It still shouldnt be artifacting.

I actually tried this, though I didn't expect it to work.

But did you use driver sweeper after uninstalling the ATI driver and reboot between each step? If you don't, then traces of old drivers can be present and can cause this type of thing to occur.

As above, this needs to be done after a fresh install and only after driver sweeper was used and you rebooted after using driver sweeper and installed the new driver.
