I have a MSI Geforce 560ti Twin Frozr II and am having problems with it artifacting.
My system is
AMD Phenom II x2 560 BE 3.3Ghz (Overclocked to 3.8ghz and cores unlocked x4)
ECO ALC Water Cooler
8GB DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Ram
Asus M4A88T-M/USB3 880G Socket AM3
Coolermaster Elite 500w PSU
I originally had a INNO3d GTS 450 1GB Graphics card which I had to send back because it started artifacting after a few weeks. The company tested it and said it was faulty and refunded me.
Guys Iâ€™m at a loss now, I spent a load more on a better graphics card the 560ti and had it about a week, all of a sudden its started artifacting a few days ago on Mafia II so I guessed it could just be the game mucking about. A restart fixed the problem, I was playing Batman GOTY Arkham Asylum last night with everything whacked up to MAX and it ran brilliantly. The fan on the card was coming on and off as it needed to then 40 mins in the game executable stopped responding and then when I load up Google it starts artifacting and wont load anything up at all graphic wise.
I borrowed a friendâ€™s 8800GT and used it for two weeks while the company were sorting out my GTS and that was absolutely fine not a spot of trouble.
Could it be that I have two dodgy cards from two different suppliers and two different makes!!
Iâ€™ve got a video clip of the artifacting which Iâ€™ve uploaded to the net,
Any Help greatly appreciated! Iâ€™m getting desperate!!!!
