Bought it brand new from Newegg back in late December.

It is currently in a shipping box ready to be shipped out for RMA. My placeholder GPU is my old Radeon HD 3850 and it runs Far Cry 3 at 20 FPS on low settings with no game breaking problems. There are some slight signs of artifacting but it is very minor and probably expected from such an outdated GPU.

There should be no excuse as to why my 670 performs worse than my 3850. The RMA instructions say it will take a week for them to fix it plus shipping times, so I may need to buy a new GPU from Fry's Electronics and when the RMA card returns to me, I'll just sell whichever one I don't want.

For the new card, I'm not sure whether to go for Nvidia or AMD this time. I'm leaning towards AMD since my experience with Nvidia has not been good.

(dont know for sure on this lol)

oh ok next time (hopefully there isn't one lol) you should try to set up the RMA through the vendor (evga, msi, asus) they will usually just send a replacement right away when an RMA is opened and then you send the broken card this way there is very little wait time for the new card, or thats how it worked for me through EVGA anyways. but yeah your new one should be fine no worries man i mean you can clearly see that yours is just a lemon in the batch as there are benchmarks showing the true performance of your ordered card.

but im just saying more that you had issues from ram going bad not at new vid card install right? his problem started when a new video card was put in and not after a year of good performance then a sudden crash with no hardware changes.

Have to realize that the more graphic intense the game usage, the more Ram is used also to help keep performance great.

I understand that but it is 2 sticks in dual channel so both will be in use no matter the card right? so problems should persist with any card right? or are you saying it like a problem with ram may go un-noticed if it were to be using only 1gb out of 2gb and not all memory modules would be in use but then with the new card lets say 1.5gb are used per stick and one is trying to use a bad module? (im asking cause im by no means an expert and just open to learn more if you have info on the subject)

Does anyone know if 1333 Mhz ram and 1600 Mhz ram makes a difference in gaming performance?

I just played 5 minutes of Far Cry 3 on my re-seated 670 and I got a "Far Cry 3 has stopped working." error.

The fact of the matter is that when playing more high visual games, there is more Ram is being sent to the CPU to stop the latency or choppiness you see in most games, this is when you will start to see more crashes etc... The CPU is so reliant on Random access memory that even 1 error on a single module will cause a crash since its reading at such high speeds of around 9000mb/s, it needs to be perfect or issues will arise.

Try 1333Mhz and see if it still crashes.

The problem is, I was using 1333 Mhz when the game crashed after 5 minutes.

If nobody can suggest anything else, I'll just buy a 7950 and be done with it.

So you have run a Memtest over night?
