check the comments on your youtube vid, I marked where you have artifacts.

I don't see any comments, 3 were removed from author but otherwise I have 2 comments and none are marked with times. Yes it is completely stock speed, not even OC'd in CCC or anything. Just "as is" card.

Artifacts bad? :/ Can someone show me where they are? post comment with time plz.

Tried furmark and it was fine. No errors or anything looking weird.

***Note the lines in the beginning were from the cap card. I hit record right when it was starting and both my record hotkey and heavens hot keys got mixxed up and it glitched the cards recording since 2 hotkeys for 1 thing. I never saw those lines in the actual test.

Well looks good to me, have you tried a different game yet? Or has it given u strange lines or lockups when u opened an apllication? If it fails again and you are sure its the card I would just RMA it.

I SEE IT! Is having those 2 bad? worth RMA'ing. Are graphics cards not suppose to have any faults? You think it would fix up the Vegas pro 11 issue/Tribes ascend crash?
Also I saw a bunch when you pointed that out all around the same time. There were 2 more in the span you mentioned.

Leaving this choice to you guys... Should I RMA it?
post #37 of 138
I am sorry to say this but you may have a faulty and card and both Nvidia and AMD are going to have a few faulty cards go out.

Just RMA it. I find that people not as familiar with computers and computer hardware will get a bad product and assume that the brand just sucks, but I work in IT and I will tell you ALL the brands ship faulty products. That is why warranties and RMA procedures exist.

So RMA the card already!

Gotcha, doing it now. Anybody know the process? How long is it going to take for me to get a new card shipped to me after I send this one in? It's with XFX so if anybody knows how they are from personal experience it would be much appreciated.

Looks like a software conflicts as you have so many apps in the system (Sony Hardware accelerations?).

How many monitors are in use? HDTV is not the best for all apps as the EDID need to be modified to work with one app but will crash in another. Try run it without the HDTV and PC monitor.

I disable my HDTV when I am video editing. Yea it crashes a lot faster when I am using the HDTV as duplicated PC monitor but I disabled it and it still happens. Only 1 monitor on the DVI out port from GPU to a HDMI in port on my monitor. Nothing more. DVI/HDMI cable came with monitor.
