I just got my 8790 back today from sager. It had the same exact problem: artifacts ruin any game that uses 3d acceleration. I dunno what they fixed, but have been playing some games now (vampires: bloodlines) for 2-3 hours @ stock clock with no artifacts at all. So whatever they did fixed the problem for me. Also it seems my machine is running a lot cooler than b4. Normally idling temp is 45 ish with my laptop cooler and 60ish gaming. Now it's idling at 40ish even without the cooler, and gaming is 50ish w/out max fan. So i'd definitely recommend you RMAing your machine.
