EVGA GTX 560 ti Problems, I think?
Hello all, thanks in advance for any advice.
First, a rundown of my specs before my upgrade - MSI 797xx mobo, AMD Phenom II 965 quad core, 8 gb of ram, EVGA GTX 560ti GPU, 500 watt psu.
I would come into my office, turn on the monitor - bam, nothing. move the mouse, press num lock, nothing would respond. Hit the reset button, would boot up, tell me that Windows had not shut down properly, yea yea....
I would then check the event viewer, and nothing...just missing time from when the system froze and when I rebooted it, with no mention of any real errors.
This happened many times and was happening more frequently, so I decided a hardware upgrade was in order - ASUS M5A97 mobo, AMD FX 8350 CPU, EVGA 750 watt psu, 16 gb of Corsair Dominator RAM, and a SSD, keeping my GTX 560ti.
Heartache - crashed again. This time, I think because I was in shock, it kept messing with the keyboard and mouse, and voila, the BSOD. Long story short, I got these error codes from the reliability monitor -
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0

I have the latest Nvidia driver - 331.82, and I am running Windows 7 Ultimate with all the latest and greatest updates (problem happened on older driver and with less Windows updates).
I have started a help ticket on EVGA's website, but what do you guys think? Card dying?
