    It seems that u have a bad pipeline. RMA it if u can. Im not sure 100% but in every game i had that error,it was a core problem.

    is your hardware OCed?
    i got similar artifacts when i try to clock my memory to high.. (sorry for my bad english)
    take atitool and 3dmark03
    the "mother nature" test is perfect to check for artifacts..

    clock down your memory.

    open your case, and check if all coolers are running(also PSU).

    this can be caused by a lot of things, PSU, mobo, gpu, ram, drivers.

    If you got a 2nd pc, try switching stuff. first the GPU, then the PSU, etc
