Problem With My Video CARD ( ARTEFACTS )

Hi, the video card keeps giving me artifacts when I enter games and sometimes even in the background do you have any idea how I can solve it? This is an AMD RADEON 6900 SERIES (ASSUS)

Yeah if you're seeing these artifacts very likely the solder balls under the gpu have cracked. If so then it will need to be removed & reballed (with lead solder). Or a reflow might work. I picked up a $30 W7000 that had vertical lines on the screen and my mining rig wasn't happy with it, so I reflowed the gpu and so far so good after a week solid mining...see how long it lasts.

Basically the same issue that plagued the early versions of the xbox 360
