well, good luck. i'm off to bed. I suck @ picking out good PSUs so... lol. as far as cheap goes i see alot of low-priced good review'd Rosewill PSUs...

As far as true quality goes, i dunno. i have a thermaltake, and love it, so...

As one final note before I go to bed as well, I have taken everything except CPU, GPU, 1HDD, & RAM out of computer and tested again with the same results. Wouldn't taking all the extra componets out make it run normally since they weren't drawing watt/amperage. I also checked my 12V+ voltage and it is about 11.2, so my 12V+ isn't being used up becuase if amps go up, volts go up.

I can now say beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is NOT a PSU problem.
I ran 2 PSU's in parallel for a total of 950Watts and 60AMPS on 4 12+ Rails, no dice, still artifacting. I submitted an RMU request to ATI, I will be sending my card in tomorrow. Guess I'm stuck with my old 7600GS till then.

The reason to why it probably artifacts on desktop and other games, but not doom, might be your drivers or DirectX that's messed up.

Doom3 is a OpenGL game whereas EQII is a D3D game.

I betting I have a bad pixel-pipe somewhere in the mess and D3D is hitting it when it renders.
Eithar way, it's boxed up and ready to ship at this moment.
Hope it enjoys its' vacation to up-state New York.


Also, it is interesting you metioned it only does it D3D. That is right...odd. Hmm well, can't be driver issue becuase it used to happen in XP as well after I manually cleaned the BIOS, used DCP, uninstalled all driver software, and manually deleted any ATI folders, which is what I also did in VISTA before I change drivers.

Actually, it's quite easy just short the 14-pin to a ground pin on the motherboard power connector than plug in what you need to run, turn on the 2ndary PSU than the main PSU and hit the powe button.

Tell us how the RMA goes....

More or less, but there is a way you can literally combine 2 psus in a series and run them, I beleive i read about it on the extreme overclockers forums.
