PLEASE HELP.

maybe power supply? 300 watts is not alot of juice.

I just saw a 450w power supply at CompUSA (I think) for $30.

Possibly garbage, but list price was over $60. There were rebates on Black Friday. I'm thinking I should have gone for it. Found out my Dell 8250 has a crappy 250w power supply. So, I'll have to upgrade that before buying the 6800GT.

Did you do a fresh Windows install or just swap motherboards? Are the artifacts just in Windows or during bios and loadscreens? Are the artifacts at desktop or only in games?

That is a weak PSU for that config, need at least a 420wt PSU. Also I do trust that you are running on a clean install of windows.
