So ever since day one my GPU wasn't performing up-to-par. I pretty much ignored it, because I don't game enough to care. In the past 2 weeks I have had a steady increase of artifacts appearing on my screen, so I thought it was time for a GPU RMA. However, now that I am running off of Intel HD 4000, I am seeing CONSTANT artifacts, like bad enough to give someone a seizure. Screen is twitching too. Obviously something is wrong here, but what can it be? I'm leaning towards motherboard.
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD55
GPU: HIS Radeon 7850
Also, I have tried a different hdmi cable and tried plugging in my laptop with the same hdmi cable I use for my desktop and it works fine. I have tried a different PCI-e slot too. This rig is only about 1 and a half months old. Thanks.
