Brand New EVGA GTS 450 SC Artifacting slightly.
Dec 23, 2010, 10:32 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.

If you just got it, and you are recieving some artifacting even before you get into windows, ya, I'd recommend exchanging it. There obviously is some sort of issue.
