like i said the same exact thing happened with high end 8-series cards... and of course no one remembers... EVGA OCed cards were being RMAed like crazy and come to find out it was the drivers.... Im sorry but this wild conspiracy isnt going to fly. With computer products so specialized now days a small minority is ALWAYS going to have a problem...ALWAYS. Chances are people are putting these cards in OEM boxes and unanticipated problems are coming to the surface. Duckie arent you the same person who said i didnt need NCQ and had no clue of my setup... once again this is a hasty generalization

Hmmm.... My wife plays the Sims 2 for hours on end, with everything set to maximum, and we've never had a crash. Maybe people are overclocking them a bit too much? I have mine set at 716/991 (10% above factory) and it's doing just fine.

People on the eVGA forum have tried underclocking and the problem still persist. So its a hardware problem.

Maybe it's a cooling issue.
What psu's did these people have? Maybe it's a issue of people putting these in some dell with a 300w psu and expecting it to work?
If it works better underclocked, it doesn't automatically mean the hardware is faulty.

At least I hope so because I have a 9600gt coming in the mail.

This happens a lot with my card. I get different colored screens each time. Black, green, pink, blue, white, purple, and violet.

The original issue was with some of the earlier released cards (EVGA in particular). One of the circuits on the card known as the OVP (over volt protection) was extremely sensitive to excess voltage demands from the gpu and would crash and/or freeze with looping audio. EVGA did an RMA with customers having this problem and upgraded to a new BIOS for the card. I have one of the newer cards after RMA and it runs great with no problems. I really don't think that the original poster did his homework before yelling "FIRE" in the crowded theater.

My screen changes in these colors when watching videos, playing games, and viewing pictures.
