Used both 301.42 WHQL and 304.48 BETA with the same problem


Is this a hardware malfunction or a software problem?

Need your immediate advice

Thanks

the "driver stopped responding and has recovered" happened every few minutes (yes for real) when I had my 560ti 448core. going from 296.10 to 301.42 fixed that for my 560ti 448, but i gave the card to my brother and he had to roll back to 296.10 to get that to stop. I only got that with my gtx670 the day before yesterday when the card broke (massive artifacting and crashing in every game). if you are getting square patches in games and your browser even and the games crash within a minute of launching them, you may have a bunk gpu like me. my card was fine for a month, but I updated to 304.48 and Asus' new vbios, and it was never the same. clock speeds in games would be all over the place (387mhz, 608mhz, crazy numbers like that) and performance was terrible. I went back on 301.42 and it went back to normal for the most part. my gpu is now going back for rma. take a picture of a game with steam overlay (F12 to take a picture) because if your gpu is doing what mine did, programs like precision x and afterburner may not work for taking a screenshot.

I would think it's hardware malfunction. I went through the same issue with one of my EVGA reference 670's. Started out with small crashes like that giving the same message, and eventually got to the point where Windows would not load at all when the drivers were installed on the card. But if I removed the drivers, I could get into Windows in safe mode. I went through great lengths to trouble shoot the card, testing it in different systems with the same results, even re-installing Windows on my main rig. Well I eventually ended up filing a RMA with EVGA, sent it back, and they sent me a new one.

Those messages happen for various reason honestly. If you play a game and you get a bunch of blinking squares, strange lines of text (usually on older cards) or it looks like these screen shots, you have a failing gpu: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The driver issue doesn't appear ingame

Only when I'm browsing the net for example (it happened while I was writing this message again)

it's not likely the hardware then. this happened with my 560ti 448 and my 7800gtx a lot. mostly on desktop, while going into my computer/control panel and browsing the web. if the hardware were the issue, your games would show it more than anything. uninstall the drivers, run driver sweeper, open ccleaner when you reboot and fix all the registry errors and reinstall 301.42. see if that helps.

It's defective, rma it. The ram on the card was bad.

So I'm hoping to join real soon but was hope someone can tell me is there much for Graphics maker to the next that puts one above the rest?

Galaxy, MSI, EVGA, ASUS, Palit or Gainward

was thinking of getting a EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB for around $479.00

or is there a better one version of it I should look at getting if it in my zone for money around $500 Austrian Dollar's

This will be my first time I speed so much on a Graphics Cards and it will have to do me for a while may be 3 years or more and I want to get bang for my buck as they say

I know there is EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Superclocked+ 4GB one out for way out of my money zone as it selling for $599

EVGA has their step up program and awesome customer service carrying them, along with dependable cards for the most part.

ASUS and MSI are both good picks in my book as well coming in 2nd/3rd place respectively.

Ive heard good things about Galaxy but no experience with them so 4th.

Palit and Gainward Ive heard nothing about nor experienced their company in anyway just because I'm usually not a fan of their aftermarket GPUs so I cant really even place them.

Just my .02 cents, I'm sure others will have something to say
