    CLean out your GPU drivers and re-instal, just to make sure they have not been corrupted.
    Make sure the heatsink on the card is not contacting anything it should'nt be on the card. Make sure the card tab and slot are clean. Update mobo, forceware drivers, BIOS. Check graphics settings in BIOS. Hopefully you didn't fry something.

    It seems like your problem is a hardware related problem. Which I would go check on the cooling fan and other chips on the card itself, making sure no scratches especially on the memory ones. I would fly to a retail store pick up a video card and go home test it. If it has no artifacts, your old one got a problem. Then go return the new card and get my money back or decide to keep it since the old card's defected.
