i just realized the weird artifacting i've been seeing now and then are my monitor's fault and not my gpu's.
aside from the fact that it also seems to effect the monitor's osd, it should've been clear after i switched gpus (because unrelated stuff) and it still continued artifacting every now and then
the weird thing is i have no clue how it happens, because sometimes it's not noticeable at all while sometimes any contrasting "thing" moving will be outlined with an obvious green and purple mess
Personal server. Totally overkill but ok.
