Choices for $200:

AMD:
6950
6970
7850

Nvidia:
GTX 480
GTX 570


You should be able to pick up any of those listed for $200 used, and I think the 7850 is just a little higher than $200 retail. It's preference to what brand you want. AMD/Nvidia.

I think i'm a bit late - but a wee trick when desoldering something, is to ADD a little bit of fresh solder, as the flux in the solder helps melt the old stuff, and clean the pad. Just for reference next time. smile.gif

i cant see anything physically burnt on the card. i will remove the heatsink and take some pictures of any carnage for you guys.
i guess i will be hunting for a new GPU instead of a SSD now. i loved this little card frown.gif

Ive placed the key facts in bold.

My question for you is: #1 why run furmark especially at very high volts, #2 full volts generally don't give you much more overclocking head room unless you're sub-zero. Hell, my 580's hit a 950 wall on air regardless of full volts or not, and under water one of them can only do 1005 core

That's odd. I run my GTX560 Ti at 1.150 with a 1055 core and all I get is VRM's hotter than the sun. rolleyes.gif

(I actually run it at 1.087 at 1044, I'm not crazy)

from the research i did, that voltage is within acceptable limits. and me not being at the computer when the failure happened is totally irrelevant.

#1 i was under the impression that furmark was popular tool for stress testing cards. guess its a bit too good of a stress test rolleyes.gif
#2 why wouldnt i up the volts? my temperatures were still more than acceptable. i wanted to see what the upper limit of the card was. how the hell am i supposed to know where my OC wall is if i dont try upping the voltages? its not like i voltmodded it and did a suicide run here.



Anyways, ASUS got my card last thursday and they already shipped it out and it should be here on monday according to FedEx. I sure hope I dont become another one of these ASUS RMA horror stories. Fingers crossed.

Hey, at least you got the RMA.. lol hope you +Repped the guy who let you know that the RMA is serial based! He just saved you some dough!

Good luck, glad you seem to have it under control now thumb.gif

Sorry to here this. But this is why you don't run furmark.
