Closed Brand New EVGA GTS 450 SC Artifacting slightly. Tags: Graphics Cards EVGA Boot Graphics Last response: December 30, 2010 11:11 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Totempole December 23, 2010 10:32:24 PM Hi Guys. I received my EVGA GTS 450 today. After installing it the PC booted fine, I loaded the drivers (260.99) an when I rebooted the PC, There was a tiny artifact on the XP Boot Screen. My question is, should I worry about this? The card doesn't artifact at all during 3D Intensive games, just on that boot screen. Oh, and it also only appears about 3 seconds after the boot screen has appeared. It's always in exactly the same place, and it doesn't bother me as long as it's not terminal. I've provided a picture of what the artifact looks like. And yes, I am going to be upgrading to Win7 once I've gotten round to backing up my data. Thanks.

There obviously is some sort of issue. Totempole December 30, 2010 11:10:03 PM Best answer selected by Totempole. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
