    you'd probably get a lot of computer lockups\freezing and artifacts in games.

    it's random colors and lines and other crap appearing on the screen.

    here's one example but there's lots of other kinds of artifacting: http://www.webslingerz.com/eyepopper.../artifacts.jpg

    it's basically things apearing on the screen that shouldn't be there.

    umm, artifacts are reminants of a previous video frame appearing on the current video frame.

    hence the name.
