Yeah, I've been bugging my dad about it since I discovered it, funny thing is that I would have been able to earth the outlets myself, problem is that our insurance-company wouldn't really like it tongue.gif (Taking electrician classes)

I've figured I want to blame the 7750 for beeing bad, even though I'm not sure how it'd work with it working on other computers and all, but.
So, I'll generally have the option to change it for another 7750 (same one from Gigabyte) or if I throw in another $25 a GT 630 (Also from Gigabyte) what would you guys reccomend (Note that the 7750 is at a $50 discount)

If you have the option to return the card, I would just to eliminate it from the list of possible causes. If the problem persists then you know for sure it was not because of the card. Stick with the 7750 its a better card specially if you are getting it for a better price.

I'll do it tomorrow, as I didn't bring it today. (Unless I'm going back into the city for whatever reason later today)

In case anyone is interested to know it, I got the card replaced with another 7750 1GB (same card) and it's working. Seems to have been something wrong with the card after all tongue.gif
So I can now play Crysis 2 at an average of 90FPS rather than the 25 I used to have biggrin.gif (Note that I care more about the experience of playing the game more than the graphics)
