Aparition - upgrade time.

Upgrade, ya smile.gif
Actually not a bad time either. I'm pretty happy actually about having an iGPU, means my system isn't totally shut down, while I gather funds.
I'd love a 780, but we'l see how much of a budget I can build winksmiley02.gif

single GPU and not SLi..?
post #54 of 80
I'm only on a 60hz 1920x1080 monitor. So either I would go for top shelf single card or SLI/Xfire two lower cards all for about the same amount of money rolleyes.gif

I'd look at AMD but I actually really like PhysX. Looks like I'm going to have to wait till next month anyways to start shopping so I'll see what AMD does with their new driver release and if their 8x series is released yet to stir up the market.

as an alternative the 670's and 680's are dropping in price and if you don't mind used then possibilities are almost endless
with deals right now including Forum sales...
single 60Mz 1080p is sweet for the GTX 770 as well.

just my 2cents.gif

Ya, the 770 would be a great card, it is also running cheaper than the 680 new Lol, that will probably change soon.

I'm going to purchase new for the first card. Adding a second later I buy used, but for the first one those warranties are precious entities thumb.gif
Also new things are much more exciting to open with a new upgrade biggrin.gif

In the meantime however I'm going to see if there is any RMA opportunity with the 470, and if not might consider baking it. A month is a long time to not have a working GPU.

rolling back down to 314.22 as a precaution..
post #59 of 80
I started getting the dreaded nvlddmkm.sys BSOD after standbys and the odd driver crash while using Windows all of a sudden a month or two back. I'm that guy who rarely updates a good driver set and will let it run for a year or two until he really has to upgrade. Updated thrice since then and the issues kept getting worse or stayed the same. Ran MemTest for half a day, Prime 95 for 24 hours, IBT for a long as heck time but to no avail. It then dawns on me it started around the driver update. So now I'm running the default Windows 7 WDDM 1.1 drivers for my nVidia card. No issues while playing TF2 and certainly no BSOD or crash after putting it in standby while the GPU is still hot. Though if it still crashes I can't imagine it being anything other than a weird PSU issue. I even ran a memory tester for the video RAM. IT IS an old card, but hell I keep my workstation pampered.

Anyway, I saw this issue earlier this morning via RSS. I'm actually very shocked this can even happen by way of drivers! redface.gif

Edit: In light of my short-sightedness, it didn't occur to me to check out the powering options for the card because I know W7 is weird with driver issues and the nVidia power controller vs. Windows' own power management system vs the BIOS system is epic retardation on so many levels. Alas I'll give it a couple weeks before playing with drivers again.

I had loads of problems with this latest driver. Random freezes when surfing the net which I thought was a problem with Firefox until it happened in Chrome and Internet Explorer. I experienced red artifacts while in-game, random restarts, mouse pointer changes, and blue screens which I thought was an unstable ram or CPU overclock.

Rolled back to 310.90 and EVERYTHING has been fine since going 2 weeks now. No problems at all whatsoever. This driver is pure evil...
