Windows 7: Win 7 and Nividia 7900 GT

Win 7 and Nividia 7900 GT

I just put windows 7 on my second computer. Its kind of low end by todays standards. AMD Athalon 64 4000+, Nvidia 7900 GT, 2 gigs of DDR400 memory. I think the video card is a little lite side. Every so often when a video is playing the screen artifacts. 100% of the time when I start a game the screen artifacts. I tried updating drivers to the latest ones. When I do that the screen artifacts as soon as windows boots. If I leave the drivers as is when windows does its automatic update for them I am ok, but still no games and 50% on video. I lent a friend of mine an extra 8800 gt card I took out of my main computer when i upgraded it to newer hardware. I am going to get it back tonight and see if this solves my problems. Any ideas/help would be great.

Usually screens artifact because of bad overclocks. If you're overclocking reset back to stock speeds. Otherwise you might try even downclocking your card.
