Windows 7: Is my pc on it's way out??

I wasn't being defensive, although my matter of fact attitude may come off that way without the use of smilies. :)

I didn't think you were snippy either, I just wanted to clarify a few things.

If you didn't see artifacts, you don't need to run that again.

I thought you mistook my comment about updating the driver, and updated your specs instead. We're all clear there now. :)

Yes, you provided useful info, did you try updating the driver yet?

No, I forgot about the driver! I'll get to that now. When do I stop the test for the video card? I see that the log is updating.

For the other test, am I specifically looking for the word "artifact" ?

It said I had the best driver.

Thank you :)

First thing to ask yourself is if you have a perfect install similar to the one compiled in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is same for retail? Even if you don't reinstall at least apply the tools, optimizations and methods that have worked best in tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here. You'll also have the best install in the world if you reinstall following those steps closely.

If not then work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 reporting back as you go. Do the Clean Boot and hardware tests first off.

Thanks Greg. I started a new thread a bit ago. I didn't think to go on in this one.
