For the past month or so, I've been having odd artifacting issues about once a week. It only happens during gaming, and it shows up as multiple multicolored pixels all over my screen. For example, in GTA:V, when the issue happens, most models become white and won't fully load, and the pixels fill the screen. My GPU isn't overheating (topping out at about 40 Celsius) and I bought it around December of last year. It's been happening a bit more frequently now. Also, for some reason the pixels aren't present on my desktop background or steam, but are present on chrome. Restarting my computer temporarily fixes the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Artifacts in gaming/stress testing are most often a bad card. If anything is overclocked, set it to stock settings. Try a new Windows setup with clean driver setup, see how that runs. Make sure your temps are normal for both CPU and the GPU.

I checked with MSI Afterburner in-game, and both the CPU and GPU have normal temps. I had my GPU overclocked slightly, and I brought it back to stock. Only time will tell if the issue comes back.

Have you tried updating/reinstalling your GPU drivers?

Thanks for the reply. I've reinstalled the latest NVIDIA drivers and so far the issue hasn't been present, though it usually takes a while for the artifacting to appear.

I see... Good luck with the new reinstall!
