    Is my graphics card dead?

    [​IMG]

    I put a new card in and it works. Just want to make sure before I chuck it. It's the artifacting that tells me it's dead.

    Thanks.

    Do we still bake video cards?

    I think we should still bake video cards.

    Well it won't make anything worse.

    Although if it's a new card it might scupper the RMA effort.

    I had 3 560tis go like that only one got baked [as the others were under warranty]... it still didn't work but it was worth a shot...



    4 MSI Twin Frozr 560tis [the 4th had a dud fan], all dead inside of 6 months... Haven't bought a MSI card since...

    Yeah it's the 560ti in my sig.

    Running a 1050ti now. Will suffice for the mean time until I can afford to build a new pc.
