+rep. Will try it sometime later. Is HD Tune safe?
BTW, my CPU has been running stock for more than 6 months now. Sorry for forgetting to update my sig rig info though xD
I will try driver sweeper sometime soon for the GPU drivers xD

+rep for response
Yeah xD It's only recently that really irritated me since I felt like the money I spent on the new card wasn't really worth it xD
LOL I was using the 4870 before and it had the same problem (not during its first year and 10 months [Bought the PC on mid Sept 2008])
