I've been running my GT220 on an Asus M4N68T-M V2 and an M2N68-AM SE2, I'm pretty sure both are only PCI 1.0, and playing games with no problems. I would expect low FPS not artifacts if the slower bus was a problem. Try re seating the card and make sure the cooling fan is running OK. My first GT220 had a noisy fan that didn't run at full speed and I had issues like you are having. Lockups and artifacts. I actually went though two replacements before I got one that worked OK. The fan didn't run at all on the second one. Third times a charm I guess, I'm still using it, its probably close to 2 years old now. I'm getting itchy to replace it with something better though.
