count me in
Add me to the list of people experiencing artifacting. Here's NBA Live 2005:

I hadn't used my 8790 for games for a long time (around 4-5 months) before purchasing NBA Live 2005 just recently. So I wouldn't say that I've intensely used the graphics card that much. Severe artifacting occurs just seconds into NBA Live 2005 (I guess during the part it has to use 3D). In Tiger Woods 2004, it takes around a couple of minutes before the graphics card gives up.

I'll be RMAing my notebook soon. I've spoken with Sager and they told me that they'll simply replace the motherboard. However, the replacement will be the same exact model which means that there will be a considerable probability for the problem to resurface after another few months (at which time, the warranty would've lapsed). I'm pretty concerned about this because people who purchased the 8790 like myself would end up with a bad investment. I could extend the warranty for another 2 years thru Phillips for $221 for "peace of mind", but the idea that I may have to send my unit back and lose 2 weeks a few more times makes the problem really cost a lot more than $221. I don't think this is what any of us were expecting to get when we ordered our units about half a year ago.
This is another shot of Command and Conquer Generals to add to anyone's "8790 artifacting art collection":
