PostSubject: Man DOWN!!!!   Tue Sep 25, 2012 11:23 am

Hi peeps,

I haven't been about for a week or so cause my graphics card shat it's self. Hopefully the sale of the boat people i found last week will fund a new card.
Any suggestions on decent economical (CHEAP) cards?

I'm running a similar card to what Suds points to:
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3707#ov
$225.00

If you don't like the price, then something like this:

GGTX550Ti 1G DDR5 for around $115.00

You're running a 9800GTX, right?

Comparison with a 550Ti
http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=559&card2=647

And compared to a 560Ti
http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=559&card2=660

(Note that the card I run is factory overclocked to 900mhz, so eats the 560Ti in the comparison).

I had a similar problem guys... I was struggling to get more than a few minutes out of a round before crashing to desktop...

Anyhow, after trying alot of things, and about to resort to a full PC upgrade, i noticed that the Northbridge of all things was getting mighty toasty...

anyhow, 3 new case fans and $70 later and i can play BF3 again... (woohoo)

Managed to get a nice 2hr session in on one of the metro marathon servers (3500 tix or something) and no glitches, crashes or anything... I'm pretty stoked!


Anyhow, wish you guys all the best in your PC troubles too...

Cheers

Wougie (aka, spetz, aka bob...)

I meant to add, the CPU load was only about 80%, and GPU load was about 90% (I'd dialled settings right down to try and elimiate other things first)

Needless to say, inside the box is now quite cool, but i have a mighty good foot warmer, and when it's already 35 duiring the day, it's just what i want!

Hey, that's interesting. We found a partial fix for Toey's problem here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/120897-13-crash-changed-video-card-problem

This has helped but he will still crash every 1~2 hours. There's been quite a few reports of this type of problem, but the causes and fixes don't seem to be consistent. When the problem first started occurring it seemed very much like his graphics card overheating. He replaced that, and the problem didn't go away. He did notice some DirectX error messages which led to finding the fix that he used. At one point I did ask him if he had a desk fan and could he take the side off the case and blow the fan into it to see if that made any difference. Unfortunately he doesn't have a desk fan, living in Tasmania an all. But it might well be worth picking a cheap fan up and giving that a whirl so see if it makes any difference.

He did completely reinstall BF3 and downloaded all the updates, and now, he's capped as well.

Um, I'm not sure why you think I need to look at it again. I did not make any statements about what I thought, merely provided the comparison between the two cards. Your point is?
