Tricky, evga has pretty much admited there was a problem with their 7900 line of cards, and they have issued a correction. You can rma your current card for the new version. Read up on it here

http://www.evga.com/community/messag...TOPIC_ID=17364

At least they did acknoledge they had a problem, which is more then you could say about other companys(this is a wide spread problem).

wow thanks alot, im going to send it back rma it just to make sure.
But i dont want ot end up with a even worse one though. While I havent seen any artifacts, atleast Im not sure if dots going vertically down the screen in wc3 is artifacting, but it does crash my higher required games sometimes. Think I should be safe and rma it? Ive had it a few months now.
