Serious 6600GT Problems

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Bought a EVGA Geforce 6600GT 2 days ago and I've had nothing but problems plauging me since I got it to replace the Radeon9800.

I completely removed all traces of the 9800 drivers and set up the card and installed drivers like normal.

I started having problems with frequent crashes in games. Now I cant even get it to boot into windows without crashing.

I'm about to take this piece of **** back to the store.

I've got a high quality Antec 350W psu, modified to run cooler than stock. The card is hooked up to its own seperate line for power. I've about had it with this thing.

Any suggestions?

Requirements
Minimum of a 350 Watt power supply.
From EVGA : http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...=specs&family=

Since you have the minimum PSU wattage, it's tolerance may not be good enough to supply it the power it demands. I'd suggest upgrading your PSU if you don't want to fall back to the card you had in before.

Great, as if I didn't spend enough already....

$315 for Card + Warranty

Now I'm prolly gonna have to fork over another $100 for a good powersupply...

Thats how it works LoL
I suggest not getting into overclocking if you dont want to spend too much money.
And you cant have talk of rep in your sig so I suggest changing it.
And ya.
PSU would be my first guess.

Meh, New rules, Old sig. Havent been on here in a while, but its still nice to drop by to ask questions.

In terms of overclocking, I've had very little problem and I'm quite experienced, I may just grab one of the zalman GPU coolers while I'm at it.

>.< Time to go hungry for a couple days...

First off you paid way to much for that card. Take it back for a refund and pick it up from newegg. Its only 139.

I might have considered that if I didnt want to wait for a video card. $45 of that is for a 3 year warranty from defects. Add tax onto $200 and it roughly adds up. I admit I can get it cheaper online, but I really dont feel like being stuck only to my laptop for the next week.
