Artifacts in WoW
Not sure if this is a good spot for this, but I am getting artifacts while playing WoW. I have a ATI 1900 series card with 512mb ram.
If I click the windows key and go to desktop and then back to WoW it will usually correct the problem for a while, but it eventually comes back.
Anyone else had these problems? Think it is the card, the drivers, or the game?
I have updated to the most current driver release.
I am running at reso of 1680 X 1050.
I am considering upgrading my video card and switching back to NVidia. I was thinking maybe a 260?? Any thoughts?

I'd assume you've had that card for a long time? It's probably too dusty (take it out and clean it with an air can or vacuum) or it's wearing out if it's been running OC'd. My 3 year old X1900XT was wearing out regardless of cleaning it.
Just upgrade since it's a very old card anyway. GTX 260 or Radeon HD 4870 for the same price are both a very good buy. Whatever you do though, do not get a multi-GPU card for WoW; that game really hates multi GPU cards and lots of people have problems with them.Asus P5Q Pro
