Do you have a local comnputer shop they can probably test out the card for faults costs about 20 in the UK so guessing around $30 in the US. Otherwise rma it if its still under warranty.

If it's eVGA and you registered the card with them you have a lifetime warranty anyway.

the only thing worth upgrading to is a GTX 260 or a 4870. you will not see much of improvement if you go to a 9800gtx+ or 4850.

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

I would try the PSU change first and if the lines are still there it is 100% your video card.
