Possible ways to break a GPU

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi,

yesterday I've lost my new graphics card, probably of my crap psu. I'm gonna go with a ocz psu now.
What other ways are there, that a gpu stops working (damn pixels appearing, vertical lines etc)?

A bad/weak mainboard that cant handle new cards? Or too little air flow in the pc case?

I've got this mainboard and I'm looking for a gtx 460 to use it with. Is there any chance that the card will stop working?

thank you.

don't buy a OCZ psu, their are only a select few models that are worth using, and the rest are utter garbage.
