hey all!

now I need your advice on getting a new card AGAIN!! my current GPU is horribly artifacting when using photoshop and MS paint especially when select and corp the picture! moving small dots and everything! I doubt that it's the driver.

so I only have the following choices:

1-burn the card, throw it in the trash and get gigabyte or asus and never think to buy MSI ever again!

2-give it a chance, perhaps it's a driver issue as they suspect!

3-use it till it gives really visible artifacts or even give up posting!


now I temporary use a mac, and it sucks! except for browsing the internet kinda pretty impressive tongue.gif

If your game and want to get it working maybe try flashing the Vbios

MSI is great with RMAs, why wouldn't you send it in?

My guess is he's not from USA and therefore has to RMA through retailer/distributor.

Pop her in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes WITHOUT THE HSF, then let it cool completely, re-assemble post results. Most of the time that will do the trick.

For the heck of it try dropping the core clock a bit or bumping the voltage.
