    Right so my Graphics card has this problem.

    While gaming it will give strange flashes all over my screen, they almost look like fireworks and in varying colours.

    Now and again it will also give out a blue checkerboard over textures. Every single time it will jump and stutter and eventually either CTD or freeze my whole PC resulting in a hard reset of my whole PC.

    Temperature wise it isnt going above 65 centigrade. The card is also only 9 months old.


    My gut instinct is saying the card is F****d but what do you guys say.

    Have had similar issues over the past few weeks, its more than likely linked to driver issues, but which PSU are you using?

    Sounds like artefacts to me. Possible cause bad memory or bad solder joints. Back it mate.

    :worried: I have the exact same card but currently have no issues. At least it is EVGA so warranty shouldn't be an issue.

    It's not being taxed doing these tasks.
    Gaming is going to start putting it under pressure, hence the artefacts.

    RMA for def.
