I've just installed Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB and after I've updated the driver to AMD Catalyst 11.11, the display shows weird pixel-like dots scattered on the screen.

Here's my computer specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
AMD Athlon II X4 640
Asus M4N68T-M LE V2
DDR3 4 GB
Radeon HD 6950 2 GB
Aerocool Strike X 600 Watts

This problem is driving me nuts and I would appreciate any help.

Thank you in advance.

Yes, I did and it works fine. However, I want to update the driver for BF3. I searched the net and I think the pixel-like errors is called artifacts.

Not all drivers will work with all configurations. If it will work fine with an earlier driver, then I would use an earlier driver. If its giving you artifacts now, then it will with bf3 as well, if it works with an older driver then it should work with bf3. Unless you suspect the card to be faulty, then return it, but if it runs perfectly well with older drivers then thats what I would use. Sometimes, the latest drivers arnt the best.
