Help Diagnosing 7800GS Problem! - Page 6

post #51 of 55
I have not had any trouble with mine running at very high overclocks. I played Oblivion full up for at least 12 hours on my day off with no problems. I think my settings were 490/1500. I am guessing that this may be an issue with the Evga cards and not all 7800gs in general. I kinda want to return mine and wait for the gainward bliss 7800gs 512. The one with the 20 open pipes . I fyou can see if you can get a refund and go for the 7800gs by BFG. I cant seem to find anything but praise. When I searched for "bfg 7800gs problems" I found lots of bfg or evga superclock. And most of them talked about the problems with the evga card. I am glad I decided to get BFG and overclock it myself.

If the second card I get has the same trouble, that is exactly what I am going to do, wait for the Gainward. The thing that bothers me is that eVGA has the same PSU requirements on all their cards, regardless of the clock frequency. Unless the card is at a speed of 375/1200 it starts hogging a ton of power and becomes unstable regardless of temperature. I shouldn't have to underclock the card I bought to make it work, which is why I RMA'd it.

I tried it in my friend's computer too (completely different setup; Intel CPU, RD-RAM, and some random mobo I don't remember) and it acted *exactly* the same way. I filled out the RMA stuff for Newegg and am gonna ship that off tomorrow... Hopefully the new card will be 'fixed,' but if not I might go with another manufacturer or wait for that crazy Bliss card you've all been mentioning. We'll see.

Well to make this story short, i reloaded 81.98 using Driver cleaner and it stopped rebooting and crashing to desk top.
Maybe try a different set of drivers?

Hope it helps
I have a 7800GS and your using the wrong driver...... download the 8.4.2.1 and this should solve the problem

My experience with the 6800GS!
Last night was a very interesting evening for me.
A Buddy of mine i play with just got his new computer. He has the 6800GS from EVGA.
Crashing to desktop and rebooting when trying to play BF2.

We went rounds and rounds with trying to download deferent drivers from BFG, Nvidia, XFX etc. etc. and came up with ((the driver you are trying to load is corrupt)).
Could it be an EVGA thing?

Well after using Driver Cleaner several times, we loaded the driver CD ((that came with card)) and it worked. He's back to playing BF2 and got quite excited about the quality of video.
Summery:
Could of the builder had the same issue when loading driver more than once?
Could EVGA be adding stuff to there drivers, so you have to use there drivers?

That was in the past my friend,
No i am quite happy with the 81.98. Performance gain of 10,000 points with Aqua Mark 3. And at a great 90-100FPS in BF2.
Thank you though
My BFG
