I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice about this issue. I am seeing artifacts appearing intermittently on two different screens - see attached capture.

Screen 1 is a Nixeus 30" 2560 x 1600 using a DisplayPort cable
Screen 2 is a Dell 2470 WFP HC 1920 x 1200 using DVI

As well as this - the display driver has been stopping and recovering.

I have installed Afterburner v3 and set it to "Force Constant Voltage" which appears to have reduced the number of times the diplay driver is stopping, but hasn't fixed it completely.

Can anyone givce me some advice? I don't use my machine fopr gaming - only photo editing.

Artifacts are the product of insufficient power, faulty system RAM, overheating, or a faulty card. Rule out #1 using GPUz to monitor GPU +12 voltage, rule out #2 with Memtest86+, rule out #3 by monitoring the GPU temperature in GPUz, and rule out #4 by testing it in another computer, or PCIe slot, with different display cables.

I had the same thing happen to me:

My power supply?
XFX 850W...
GPU-Z reported no isses
Memtest86 reported no issues

Even ran Prime95, no issues as well

Temperatures seemed normal for my Room temperature, which is not 22ºC, maybe 27-30ºC. 

It was tested in another computer, when I sent it to RMA.
Which, it came back with artifacts...

This line is having problems I EXTREMELY advice you to trade for a GTX770, what I have, sucks because I LOVE the R9 280X, but since AMD won't offer anything, I suppose we'll just make them lose money, even tho they could simply be honest and come out with some sort of list of fixes or even a new batch, but they're all just silent about, their loss.
