Default Display issues with 9600GT AGP


I got a Geforce 9600GT about a year ago, but I've been having problems with graphic artifacts and computer freezes ever since. Switching to a TTY and then back to X seems to fix the problems temporarily, but a reboot is the only way to get rid of the artifacts, but even then it's only good for a few days before the story repeats itself. I've both tried reinstalling the OS, Gentoo Linux, and moving the card to another computer with the same result. I strongly suspect there is a problem with the card itself, but I'd appreciate a second opinion before complaining.

Attached is a screenshot of when the card goes haywire and a bug report captured at the same time.
