XfX 7900 RMA!
New XfX 7900GT: Powered on the system...looked good initially..........ran 3DMark05 and the first test showed 58 fps and then as the test loaded the card started to artifact and run at 1 FPS and graphics wer unreadable. 2nd test started off really sl0w 6 to 8 FPS and then gradually picked up speed. First bench = 3740. Removbed all the drivers and reformatted the drive (new build so NP). Added cool bits and the card would only OC by 10/25 from 500/750(1500). Called XFX...and asked if it was a burn in issue nad they said no! Good to go at power up or there probably was a GPU or Memory issue with the card. Even though it ran okay after that (7850 to 8100 in 3DMark05) I recided to RMA athe card with Tiger Direct and they were out of stock so they are sending a BFG 7900GT. Am I better off with the BFG?
