Ok guys,

Need your help please.... I bought an EVGA 7900GT KO Superclocked about a month ago and it turned out to be one of the ones with the dodgy memory chips, so I was getting artifacts and PC crashing when playing games. Anyway, so I got it RMA'd backed to EVGA and received my new card, and guess what? IT STILL DONE THE SAME!! :mad:

I'm getting a full refund now and would like to know what card you guys would suggest for around £230ish???

Cheers.

join the club mate, my 7900gs died the same death as your 2 cards did, but i learnt my lesson the first time, the rumours of nvidia having fixed the problems with the 7900 series of cards was all blag. i ended up getting the ati x1900xt card which cost me £170 ish.

x1900 XT. :)

Yes it was all blag, thats why they replaced them with the 7950 GT, which was actually an admittance that they were all borked, as why have to stop producing them, and replace them with another card if they were fine. :)

Artifacting graphics cards can't seriously harm someone or force a plane to land, exploding batteries can.

That's the huge difference.

Well I'm glad you said that, because I was going to get the 7950GT, as EVGA told me they were flawless performers lol!

So your all saying X1900 XT yeah? I'm an ATI virgin :eek:

Why recall them, they stopped producing them as they could'nt fix em.

imo ati have the best cards out for the best price atm go with a x1900xt and no its been proved the x1950xt only gives a few fps more than the xtx, most on here will say forget the xtx and get a xt and clock it though.
