    Hey guys, About two weeks ago I sold a 550TI on Ebay, It was only put in a computer to install Windows7 then was taken out.

    I sold it to someone on ebay, He has come back to me and asked for a refund as the card is faulty, He has told me the memory on the card fails.

    I had the card back today to have a look over and I have done a stress test for 45mins using Furmark and it all looks ok, Max temp 75 I don't see any problems or faults. I have also played Skyrim on high settings for 2 hours and no problems there either.

    So How do I go about testing the GPU Memory? Any advice?

    Cheers.

    What were the buyers symptoms and what were they doing when they occurred?

    He claims he tryed a game and it crashed after 1 hr, He sells computers on Ebay and has good feedback. He claims to have tryed it in a few of his systems. I just want to make sure his claim is true before I refund him.

    Which game?

    If you want to test it i'd use a game that uses a lot of video memory and heats the card up, Crysis 1 or 2, Shogun Total War, Battlefield 3, Witcher 2 etc
