gtx295 fried... now what?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I believe my 295 has failed. I get 1 long a 3 short beeps for a post with nothing showing up on the screen. Tried a different card and everything worked fine. So I want to upgrade without spending more than 300 and still do better than the 295. Evga seems out of the question too since they won't cover my rma... Anyone have good luck with the Asus 560/570's?

Rig:

i7 930 stock clocked
Asus P6X58D-E
Thermaltake Toughpower 700w psw
Evga GTX295 2pcb version
3x2gb OZC ddr3 1600

What shall I get?!

Is there a reason why they won't cover your RMA?
(i.e. Physical damage, didn't register, hard volt mod...etc)

Because if you do manage to get an RMA, they will likely send a GTX570 or 580 back.

Get a aftermarket card if you go with the 570 so it doesn't blow up when you overclock it.

What are you going to do with that 295? can I have it please? If I fix it I will use it for 24/7 folding

They won't RMA because I didn't registar the card in time... by a few days mind you.

How could it be fixed?! Are there any 570's for 300?

sometimes baking it can fix it. As for 570's you can pick up a used MSI or ASUS one with warranty for around 300.

I think I should register my Hawk since I got it 1.5 months ago and forgot to, though it actually has a 3 year warranty starting from the date it was manufactured, which was only 2 months ago.
