RMA for a new card and see if the problem persists. That's what ATI's Tech Support is paid for...to help you.

Yeah, calling them is usually a good way to get their attention, because if you e-mail them, they can just auto-reply back and it usually doesn't help to solve the problem.

1. Check for good contact on the GPU and memory. Artifacts are usually caused by the memory.
2. If all is well, its probably a broken pipeline.
3. If its number 2, RMA it.
