Graphics Artifacts

PLEASE HELP.
I just upgraded my mobo/cpu to a Asus p4p800E Deluxe/P4 3.0 prescott. I use a Radeon 9000Pro 128mb card. It worked fine in my previous setup AMD/ABIT kt7a. Now with the new mobo/cpu I get graphics artifacts everywere. I am using new ATI drivers... HELP!!

  1. maybe power supply? 300 watts is not alot of juice.
  2. I just saw a 450w power supply at CompUSA (I think) for $30.

  3. Yeah and it's probably total garbage. A good 450W PSU will set you back at least $60.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  7. 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.
