Jeez Mr Bandwidth Hog!
Do you have the latest drivers installed?
The ATi card is known to do these things. It can get clogged with dust or just simply overheat or something and leave artifacts.
I will have to look into it to see if you have a first gen or second gen video card. The first gen was more prone to this problem. In the meantime, take some canned air to the fan and see if that clears the problem.
