When I said "still getting artifacts" I meant after updating drivers. Never had the problem before. Have still not gotten any info from ASUS. Managed to speak with someone at ASUS who seemed to be a call screener, who said she would try to help "but didn't know much about graphics cards". She was right. Amazon (bought the card from them) agreed to swap it for a new one, even though my 30 days had passed. Nice. Will let you know if the new card works correctly.
