Re: Getting artifacts on Recovery level
No artifacts here in XP or Vista with both DX9 and DX10 and the 169.09 driver. AA has got to be set to application-controlled. Thats one setting that is known to cause artifacts and another idea might be lowering the O/C but from my experience it didn't artifact and the computer just froze once I overclocked it too far.
