OHHH It has PLENTY of POWER....... This system was originally built for 2x power hungry 5970's in QUAD Fire.

Im sure one 7970 is getting PLENTY of juice from this behemoth of a PSU......

Well right now Im backing up some files then after that Im going to do a fresh win 7 install on my 200GB HDD to test.

If It makes a difference and miraculously cures my problem then I will have no other choice than to format and reinstall on a partion on my main hdd.

Purchasing a graphics card from eBay is perfectly fine. Purchasing anything from anyone with 0 feedback definitely is not. Luckily for you, if he advertised the card as fully functional, you can file a dispute against him on Paypal. You WILL win the case and get your money back.

I'm sure you've heard this already, but Ebay rule #1 = buy from people with rep, else you will get the shaft.

If you find that it doesn't work and are unable to return it, you can always put it in the oven for ~10 minutes biggrin.gif. That fixed a broken 5970 and 550ti for me, both of which I purchased from Ebay, and they artifacted like crazy before baking.

The card is faulty. Make sure you open a dispute in the Resolution Centre of your PayPal account within 45 days. Or else after 45 days is up paypal or ebay wont help you at all

I appreciate everyone's help, I do think the card is faulty. But I can't help but notice how screwed up my OS is right now.

I mean FFS I don't even have a driver installed right now. Its super retarded. I cant install one without it BSOD every time I reboot. dafucc?

Strangely enough I didn't have this problem before I swapped from my spare Nvidia GT 520 which is absolute weak sauce for a GPU but ran like a champ.
