clear your cmos and see. It's going to blank anyways when you flash.

i'd flash anyways, that bios release is suspicious. Like a bugfix.

Try that bios. The late release of it makes me think its a fix of some sort. Far be it from any vendor to ever admit a problem.

Ok tried the bios, cleared the CMOS, tried both videocards with several different drivers, clearing each version out with driverguru driver cleaner, still artifacting, but a little less often. :(
