Gigabyte 5870 (crashes every game including crysis at stock clocks very unstable)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I but a GIGABYTE 5870 on eBay I get the card a little late and In a box I see the card no bubble wrap no packing peanuts just sitting there...





So I was expecting it not to work but it posted I go to run crysis it crashes crysis screen flickers on and off then display drivers restart on windows. This is at stock clocks everyone I have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest drivers it does it in heaven benchmark as well idk what is going on I assume its from the careless packaging... But guys please try and get this card to work for me!

Then you'd better ask the seller and then open a paypal dispute that he sold you a defective card. That's why I NEVER buy used cards anywhere.

edit: try reinstall windows

I've sold 40+ cards and none bad.

to OP: The seller sent your the card without any bubble-wrap/peanuts, not securely packed. I think the card might be damaged during the shipping. I would file a dispute. Btw, what driver version did you try? 11.5a? I'd try some older drivers as well.

well apparently he didn't care enough about your stuff that you paid for.

@OCnewb well used cards can't be trusted even with the seller claiming the warranty is valid, I think I'm a bit paranoid with my investments
