Do i have a faulty graphics card?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Should I ask for a new graphics card it? It's getting weird things:

http://cloud-2.steampowered.com/ugc/560971494701992140/240470514AB57930486E10FC25D695E17F8B8345/

as an example. THere would be times where square checkered black stuff will pop out in random locations.

HD 7870 Powercolor MYST edition LE from Newegg\

edit: this occurs not every time but after playing for a while. I tried to turn up the fan to 100% but the problem still prevails. Looks like it's getting worse day by day...

Those seem like artifacts to me. U sure u have the lastest drivers? Are u overclocking the card? If so try lowering ur settings a little.

Can you test the card in another PC? If you get the same issue in an different PC then defenitly RMA the card.

HEy,

Yeah latest drivers, still nothing. (didn't try the beta though). No the clock's at stock. I'm almost positive the graphics card is faulty since my old HD 6870 still works fine. I've even tried to re-attach the 7870 but no luck. Thanks for the clarification saying that these are actually artifacts and not part of the game +1 rep

These look like Vram related artifacts. If it is behaving like this on stock clocks, absolutely do ask for a new one.

Do you get this with any other game aswell? It certainly doesnt look like any artifacts ive seen before. But its not a part of the game either. Im strongly leaning towards faulty drivers.

Yeah, all of my games. Even when I'm not playing and does weird stuff on my desktop but only occasionally. I'll try the beta driver tomorrow

Totally off topic but I have that same profile picture as you on the Frictionalgames forum xD

It wouldn't appear like that if it was the video card. You can't screenshot GPU artifacts. God damn. You just made this person waste several weeks of their life.

Thats strange. If i google videocard artifacts there are like a gazillion people who were able to make a screenshot of artifacts ingame and of their desktop.

Would u care to elaborate on why it is not possible?
