Can't RMA it, BFG tech went out of business. And i can't afford an expensive replacement card, maybe something 40-60 bucks.

Btw, my card still run find normally, except when trying to use 3D acceleration. So in another word, any games with 2D drawing or flash games, or normal computer usage of web browsing or word processing still work fine. I guess i can keep on using it for a while more before i have enough money to get a better card. No games for a while...cold turkey now.
Death to SONY!

Before you declare the card a total loss consider a few things.
The stock thermal pads on most of the cards I've seen hardly even make contact with the chips. You could pull the cooler off and replace the thermal paste and pads. If that doesn't work you could always try underclocking the memory. Yes, you'd lose some performance, but you'd still be alot better off than any card you could buy for 60 bucks. If you could get it stable for any amount of time it would allow you to save up more money for a better card. At this point you have nothing to lose, so I'd be willing to give anything a chance if I were you.
Alternately, if you can't manage to get it stable the best you're probably going to be able to do for $60 is a used 9800GTX/GTS 250.

I've never work on the card before, so i don't know how to to replace the thermal paste and pads, and not sure how to underclock it. Usually have everything at stock.

If your thinking of overheating that caused artifacts, I believed its more of a GPU memory failure, than overheating. Went under artifact scanning and got nothing, but with OCCT memtest, i got tons of errors within minutes.

Seriously? Your advice is to sell a dying card on eBay?

@OP, Newegg's marked down their 1G 4670s for their weekly sale.

$44.99 with rebate.

Unless you know that the heatsink is actually making good contact with the chips then you can't rule out overheating. You can see the GPU core temp, but you aren't seeing the temperature of the memory chips. I've pulled the heatsink from my card one time and I can't see how the pads were doing anything at all. The idea in underclocking your memory is that artifacts start showing up when you've pushed something too far. Your vram may infact be dying, but you might find them stable at a clock that is lower than stock. When overclocking you usually back off a little after you start seeing artifacts, so start reducing the memory clock in MSI Afterburner and stressing the memory. You might not have any luck, but it's worth a try IMO.

I don't think he meant to sell the card as working, but rather as a dying card. Someone might use it for parts, try to coax it back to life, or for a wall ornament. It's better to get a few bucks out of it rather than let it collect dust.
4670 < 8800GT. The best card you're going to find is an 8800GT. It's a step down from your GTX 260, but it's not that bad of a card. It may be a little old, but it can still kick some ass. Other than that you might be able to find an 8800GTS/9800GTX/GTS 250 used.

If you want to stay with nVidia, I'd say wait for the GeForce GTX560 or just grab a GTX460 if you can't wait. If you want to get AMD, get the 6850 or 6870. I think it's possible to unclock a 6850 because it's pretty much the exact thing as a 6870. I haven't looked for articles. I think the best deal though is to get a 6950 and unclock it to a 6970 which is a good $30-$40 more for some cores that are just not being used on the 6950.

What's a good replacement for GTX260? That is the same in power?
6870 probably do a better job.

Anyway, have you heard about baking your gpu in the oven? Your problem sounds like you are having micro fractures because the connection between the components inside the gpu was bad.

Try baking to re-solder the joints together.


Hope this helps
