Default Artifacts in Batman's Arkham Asylum are driving me insane!


Playing the superb Arkham (V 1.1) on very high settings (1920x1200 MSAA 4x, VERY HIGH, PhysX on HIGH). Frame rate is excellent (50ish) but sadly i'm getting artifacts appearing after a period of play - large browny green triangles of varying shades. This requires a restart of the game, but sure enough - they are back again after a period of time.

Currently running 64 bit 191.03 Drivers, but issue doesn't seem to be driver specific.

I recently bought a GTS 250 card to offload the PhysX onto as recommended here:

Temps on my GTX295 GPU's are maxing at 81 C, but artifacts can appear when they are at 74 C or so. But aren't they meant to get pretty high?

Temp on GTS 250 pretty lowish - around 45 C.

The cards sit next to each other on the motherboard which does concern me. But this is necessary as those are the only compatible slots.

Using the tuning tool, the motherboard voltages look stable so it doesn't seem to be power?

Neither CPU, VGA's or board are OC'd

Any thoughts welcome?

Could it be the drivers are buggy?

Intel Core i7 920, Gigabyte EX58-UD3R Rev 1.0, 6GB DDR3, GTX 295, GTS 250 (PhysX), OCZ Vertex 30GB SSD, 500GB HD, Corsair TX650W PS, Antec 300 Case, Windows 7 64-bit RC 1
