im running a evga 7900GT with the 93.71 drivers from nvidia yet i still get artifacting in anything from bf2142 down to simple games like second life. i have tried older driver versions and checked to see if the card is overheating. the highest i have seen it get is around 80C after a few hours of bf2142.

i cant figure out exactly what the problem is and unfortunately don't have the time lately to really test it out so if anyone has any ideas or has seen this before please let me know. i would rather wait for another 6-8 months before buying a DX10 card if i could

it could be the card is experiencing DEATH.
video cards die.
i had a 7900gs that started doing things like this



and this




i hear it is the memory that goes bad.
i was also getting artifacting in css and other games as well as the 2d desktop.

Problem is with the Samsung memory. They've since replaced them with Infinion RAM, so register your cards on EVGA's site and RMA the cards :) 

I had the same problem with my 7900GT KO Superclocked. They sent me 3 cards and ended up giving me a 7900GT KO 512mb version instead which works great to this day!

Oh and BTW this is a WELL known issue with 7900 GT cards. I'm not talking about just a few people, I'm talking about like a large % of cards. Big enough for NVidia to feel the sting ;)

My SLI'd Asus & XFX 7900GT's never suffered that fate, but didn't EVGA also suffer a lot of problems with their 7900GTX's ?
