Since I don't want to throw out my money, I would like to know your opinion.
There is anyone who experience this combo succesfully and, if yes, with what brand of Nvidia 980 Ti ???
Any help will be appreciated.
Check your BIOS ver. to see if anything really needs updating.
Not sure what's wrong with installing a new card nor does the brand of card really matters.
But if I were in your case, I would uninstall your current driver in your OS. Then restart the computer and shut down.
Take the old video card out and swap in the new card (make sure connections are in place and everything). Install the new drivers.
Reboot, and test it.
Or if you prefer to do it the safe way, you can start everything from scratch. That includes formatting and re-installing Windows. But before you do that, have the card installed first before you proceed with formatting Windows. I honestly don't think its the hardware that may pose problems, but the software. At times, manufacturer may not continue to support by updating the software. In that case, you may be out of luck.
