Quote: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 There are some slight signs of artifacting but it is very minor and probably expected from such an outdated GPU.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.
