See? This is what I mean by the poor quality of factories overclock, and thats why I keep saying, ATI FTW!
Call XFX And throw it at their face and tell them to not OC cards if they don't know how to do it in first place.
Its obviously not the poor factory Overclock...I know this becuase I have a factory overclocked card and I got it when the early batch was available and I've never had a single problem.
The whole problem with these 7900GT's are the memory is basically craping out and the IC's are overheating and frying boards.
For those that dont know I would like to clarify this:
is A 7900 GTX
Same Core. Similar PCB's.
The 7900 GTX obviously has 256 more ram, and its VCORE is set to 1.4. The 7900 GT is set to 1.2.
So now that we have this clear, you know how stupid the Idea of a 512MB 7900GT Version is
Extending the Life of a 7900GT can be done my simpily upping the voltage to 1.4. Dont ask why.
Back on topic..
AMD GT Player these crashes and freezes are very common
send it back and get a new one.

First. Dont double Post.
Second. I would like to read that article as from my knowledge its not the companys, mainly the horrible design and function of the GPU.
