Artifacts at stock clocks on Gigabyte 7950

I've had a Gigabyte 7950 Wind Force 3 Edition for a little over a month. One day while playing BF3 I started seeing black triangles all over my screen. At first it was only after playing for a while but now it happens 5-10 min into a game. I have read this can be caused by a bad overclock but I run at stock clocks. So far this only happens in BF3, playing Bioshock Infinite even for long periods would work just fine. I just [ast my Newegg RMA date so hopefully there is some way to fix the problem.

On a side note Bioshock Infinite was incredible.

Contact Gigabyte for an RMA - that's not good at all, and is a sign of something seriously wrong with the card if it just suddenly started doing this without a change in the system.

The audio started having a crackle through the HDMI from the GPU. Could this be something caused by the graphics card or the on-board audio through the mobo?

The onboard audio shouldn't mess with the graphics, but try hooking up speakers and seeing?

I'm almost positive it's from the graphics card, or possibly a failing power supply - what make and model is yours?
