7900 GT, artifacts?

Hello everyone!

I bought a new GeForce 7900 GT "OC Series" from BFG Tech, with 256 MB of memory and it has a strange problem... When using the card in the resolution of 1280x1024 and AntiAliasing 4x or higher, the 3D graphics become corrupted, like this: http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/1498/artefatosok9.th.jpg
If I put the AA setting to 2x there´s no problem.
I have tried several drivers, even re-installing Windows more than one time, also, with no success.
Might the card be defective? Some sort of incompatibility with my hardware?
It´s A64 X2 4600+ on an ASUS A8N-SLI32 Deluxe, with 2 GB Corsair... And the power supply is a SevenTeam 500 Watts.
Thank you in advance for any clue!

Rgds,

WF

  1. may i ask what game that is anyways...
  2. Those are memory artifacts, and they are extremely bad for your card. There has been problems with the 7900GT's and I'm sure you must have heard about them.

    You can try underclocking your card, or doing other things, but I wouldnt bother....I would RMA it.

    It's not a game, it's the nvidia Geoforms demo/screensaver, and it doesnt run on ATi hardware.
