I am about to go crazy. I am running GTX 280 SLI and sometimes I will just get a random frozen screen of artifacts.. sometimes it is in game, sometimes out of game. It also happened a few times once my computer started to load the desktop. It happens with both of my cards when i single them out.. I have tried different PCI-E 2.0 slots and it still happens. They are really random. Sometimes it seems like it has been fixed, and about a day later it will happen. I just have a hard time believing that both of my cards could die with in the same week. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

Could be time to upgrade... Have you tried different drivers? Artifacting could be a possible issue with either the chip.. or the drivers loading improperly

I have tried the drivers. I have tried the normal drivers and the beta nvidia drivers.
