Gigabyte GTX 560 Graphics card keeps on failing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Let me say this, I am on a freaking rant right now. I am so pissed off at this piece of crap product I have and this garbage company named gigbayte. I purchased my computer for gaming about 6 months ago an I have had this problem EVER SINCE I BOUGHT IT.

It used to be so bad that I couldn't watch youtube videos or play games such as starcraft 2, diablo 3, team fortress etc. I shipped it in last month and got it back fixed. It has been good for about 3 weeks, BUT IT'S BACK TO THE same old crap.

I can't watch youtube videos for more than 10 minutes, can't play any game other than counterstrike, if it goes to hard I get the blue screen of death... What the hell is causing this problem?

I have tried literally everything that I have googled. I've reinstalled the drivers, checked for overheating etc and it still breaks. When I called gigabyte they said something was damaged (cant remember lol), and they supposedl fixed it.

Does anyone else have any trouble with this?



ALSOOOOOOOO

Is there anyway I can get free shipping with a gigabyte RMA? I AM NOT forking out another 30 bucks to ship to cali for their mistake. Also, can I request a BRAND NEW graphics card or newer model since this piece of crap isn't working?

If you sent it in once already, it's probably not the graphics card. I would start looking at the power supply as a possible issue. What brand and model is your PSU?

Your CPU is probably unstable. If you can pass 24hr of p95 and 50 passes of IBT then your PC is not stable.

Most of the bad nvidia cards I have gone through would not BSOD but the driver would always crash when the cards were going back. Playing a game then to the desktop with a driver has stopped responding and recovered error.

Stable is a relative term, but I think 50 passes of IBT or 24 hours of Prime95 is overkill. 20 passes or 8 hours is probably sufficient.

Could you please list your pc specifications or fill out your forum sig with them. It could be a bad gpu, stick of ram, unstable overclock or any of the above, or even a bad psu rail. Please fill out your specifications and also what gigabyte 560 gtx model is it?

This. What bsod code are you getting ? I'm thinking its not your card. Please fill out all your specs as accurately as possible.

Sorry guys, I'm not an expert on computers but anyways

Motherboard: Gigabyte z77-d3h
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2550K CPU @ 3.40GHz
Ram: 8gb
Gigabyte GTX 560 2gb (not the Ti version)

These are the basic specs, I am not sure on the power supply, where can I find this out? Are there any more specs I need to list?

This is really frustrating, how am I able to tell if it's a problem with another part of my computer or just my graphics card?

Thank you for all the replies and help

EDIT: I looked and the power supply is GS700? That is the only info I could find
