Artifacts on my Samsung 213T/6800 ULTRA OC

    I have the 213T and the BFG 6800 ultra oc.
    There are artifacts, little rectangular blips of
    the wrong color, here and there, on the display.

    Shortly after boot the system hangs.

    I have a Antec 550W PS with both dongles(from
    separate power cables) installed.

    I sent it back to BFG, the replacement arrives today.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    thanks and game on,

    Card came in, same bug. I know it was
    a new card because I marked in 3 different ways.


    Returned 550W Antec PS for a 550W Enermax
    and KAABBOOOMM!!!!!!!!! No more artifacts!!!!!!!!!

    System is groovy.

    Spinlock didn't say which motherboard, but if I recall correctly I believe
    that I read somewhere there was/is an ASUS mobo that had problems with Antec
    power supplies (the P4P800 maybe?)... although I'm not 100% positive.

    Interesting, the mobo is the ASUS P4C800E.

    The Enermax is working great. I like the adjustable
    fan, cranked it right up to 2600 RPM. I also like
    the fact that the 20 pin/4 pin(square) power cables for the mobo
    are shielded(I don't think the Antecs are) and there is
    a extra 4 pin(straight, hard disk type) connecter coming
    out of the shielded mobo power cables. I plugged this into
    the bottom power connector on the 6800.

    I really respect Antec, but, that PS would not work
    with my mobo/6800.

    I had a hard time believing myself.

    I really respect Antec, but, it was clearly causing
    my artifacts and rebooting.
