Windows 7: GTX260 Video Artifacting/BSODs

Don't have MSE installed... and I'm running the 10.2 drivers. Havn't actually gotten a BSOD on the 5770. But trying to play CoDMW2 or CS:S, after about 5 seconds of joining a game, the screen goes black, it makes a horrendous noise from my speakers... and also, the last couple times, I can hear the fan on my vid card speed up to like 100%...... very strange, but the newest game, BFBC2 plays almost perfect, besides textures glitching oddly.

EDIT: I bought a new PSU.. a good Corsair 750W with a single 60A 12V rail... It didnt change a thing so I took it back

try google-ing your PSU and motherboard and see if others are haveing simuliar issues.

Well if you do buy a new PSU and that turns out Not to be the problem then you can always take it back to the store you bought it from.

thats easier than buying a new Motherboard and rebuilding the whole system to find out the answer.

hope this helps.

Edit:

I just noticed your Edit. and you tried the later

It could be your OS/ software.. you run any virus or trojan scans?

No luck man. I will be returning the ATI vid card today or tomorrow, I think I'm gonna try a different MOBO and if that fixes it, RMA my current one and sell it. Im to the point of starting over now.

I did run a Virus scanner. Clamwin is what I ran. I got these problems before, and recently re-installed Win7 with only vid card drivers and the games i play, and got the same issues. Leaving right now to take back my 5770 and gonna pick up the cheapest AM3 DDR3 mobo they have, and try it out. Wish me luck

GTX2xx series cards heat up very quickly, I have to use EVGAPrecision and clock the fan up to 100% before playing otherwise it heats up quicker than the auto-fan speed control does and either BSODS or causes artifacts.

Mind you I play with the highest possible settings in all my games while using a resolution of 1680x1050

Mine stays around 60 degrees with stock fan (40% i believe) but I have used EVGA precision to clock it up around 80%.

Just got a new mobo...

Artifacting on all Source Engine games?
Title says it all pretty much, every Source Engine game I play (HL2, L4D, CSS, TF2, etc) has minor artifacting (moreso on games running the Ep1 Engine as opposed to the Source 2007/L4D engine.) Does anyone else experience this and/or know a fix?
