My 295gtx has an issue where certain texture/objects flicker in game when in multiGPU mode and although I have a 950watt PSU with 4 12v rails with 20a on each for a total of 80a, I suspect my PSU is causing the issue because I have literally rulled almost everything else out. What is a good PSU for my sig rig to solve this issue?

Added link to current PSU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-035-_-Product

My video card is not OCed and the same issue happens when my CPU is at stock. If anyone has any idea other than it being caused by my PSU I am all ears (or in this case eyes) but I have done so many things to try to troubleshoot this. My PSU is practically all thats left.

If your overclock on the card it too much, you'll get weird textures in games. I think I got that on my old [email protected] 800mhz core and not enough voltage. Upped the voltage and it was good (watercooled though).

Does the videocard do it at stock clocks?

My video card is not overclocked and the flickering happens when the CPU is at stock. It has happened on two different motherboards with two different PSU's (the first one was definitely not powerful enough though) and I have already RMAed my video card once and they told me they sent me back a different one(of the same type) so it has also occured on two different but identical 295gtx's. My power supply is low quality I think.

Here is a link to my PSU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-035-_-Product

Dont get a 295, get something from the 400 series.

650 is the recommended wattage for a gt 295 you'll be fine, that 950 you got cant even be flushed because it would be an insult to your toilet that's how bad it is
