Threat of artifacts, should I be concerned?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
First time builder here, chose to go with an intel platform and nvidia graphics. I currently have all of my hardware coming through the mail and arriving in a few days, and being the type of worrywart that I am, and how many reviews I read about my purchases, should I have a legitimate concern about my 560 Ti Twin Frozr II card having a problem with it?

It seems to be a common issue on the egg's reviews, and I'm not sure if I should have made a different purchase because of this. So I ask you, yes, YOU!, do I have anything to worry about? Or will my video card likely be in great shape and live a healthy life?


Sig rig doesn't have the info, but my power supply is corsair hx650 psu. More than enough yes, but I wanted the headroom.

Someone has a saying in their sig that is very apt:

"For every vocal whiner on the Internet, there are another thousand people who use that product just fine."

Worst case, your video card is bad, and you RMA it with Newegg. Done.

Don't worry about it until you actually plug it in and have a problem. As Nick said, rma's are easy.

Aside from being able to return it to newegg inside of their return period, MSI has a 3 year warranty. If you're like most people, you won't keep a card longer than three years so you have nothing to worry about.

Look at the overall reviews; nothing to worry about.
