I got a Powercolour X1800GTO Today - Swapped it with my X800GT as a guy I Know doesnt have enough Power in his Dell to run it.


At first there were a few problems, But got the new drivers and everything seems cool. Im getting a 580W Hiper Modular PSU to replace my crappy 380W on Friday So Im not going see how high this baby goes till I get that


Core are at 56c Just now, which sounds fine. But Im going to wait till I get the new PSU till I take any chances

I just tried A Counter Strike Stress test - Average 100FPS which is up 40 from the X800GT But it is artifacting. So would this mean definatly that it is the Power Supply?

It looks like a PSU issue to me. However try this first and make sure that all onboard VGA is disabled.

Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.

1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:
http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.

Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.
