I bought an Abit VT7 mobo (which has a VIA chipset) for my HTPC and was having exactly the same problem. No matter what I did I couldn't stop it from artifacting. After buying an Asus mobo my problem was fixed. I am still struggling to get a refund from the supplier as the mobo says in it's specs that it would run with my video card.
