Is the graphics card faulty?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, just got myself a new rig a month ago, posted on the other section here because I suspected it was a power supply problem, but now even after replacement I face the same problem, so I'm guessing that isn't it.

So when I'm playing relatively less intensive games like Dota 2 or World of Warcraft, there's no problems. But when I run Crysis 3 or Call of Duty Ghosts, everything runs perfect at 1080P with AA, highest settings and all that jazz, but after an hour or so the screen turns green with vertical lines or just blacks out, but I can hear sounds for a few seconds. Basically the PC doesn't respond and I have to shut it down and start it again, then everything works perfectly well. The temperatures on the card don't go beyond 76 degress, and the CPU doesn't breach 63 either.

I tried the following:
1. Changed RAM slots.
2. Reseated the graphics card.
3. Changed my power cable.
4. Reinstalled drivers (currently on beta drivers, no change from release).
5. Got a new PSU.
6. Ran Prime95, MemTest and Video Memory Stress Test.

Here are my PC specs:
Intel Core i5-4670 Processor
Gigabyte H87M-D3H Motherboard
G.Skill RipJawsX [F3-10666CL9S-4GBXL] x2 (8 GB) RAM
Sapphire AMD Radeon R9 280X Dual-X 3GB Graphics Card
CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 Evo CPU Cooler
CoolerMaster GXII 650W PSU
CoolerMaster Elite 431 Plus Case
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD

I would suspect the video card, and since it's likely still under warranty I'd request a RMA just to be sure.

Yep that seems like the only choice now. Now I've actually started thinking again of getting a GTX 770 instead tongue.gif

The R9 280X is a stellar video card, but frankly all of the AMD cards are still way over priced right now. I try not to be too much of a fan boy for either team, but my last three gpu upgrades have been nVidia and I just really haven't had a compelling reason to go back and try the red camp lately.

The R9 series were really tempting, then this crazy bitcoin mining craze hit and AMD prices just got silly.

I wouldn't be disappointed with a GTX 770 card for sure.

Try uninstalling your current drivers normally, clean them with DDU, and install WHQL drivers before your replace your current card.

It's technically not bitcoin, and prices were pretty fantastic awhile back. 7950s (on par with a 770/280X) were selling for $180 new! Now they're like $300+, it's ridiculous.

Anyway, since you're switching cards anyway, have you thought about an actual upgrade? Maybe a used 780 instead of a new 770?

I'm from India, so here it's practically impossible to get a 780 for anywhere near a 770, even used. Although since Bitcoin mining hasn't really caught on as much, the R9 280X starts cheaper. I might have to spend about 30$ or so to get me a replacement for either card anyway.
