Default Please close. Thanks.

The card is no longer for sale. Sorry guys, but I'm gonna have to keep it for a little while. My Sapphire 4870 1GB is artifacting and I need to send it back to newegg and so I'm gonna have to use this card in the meantime. Thanks anyway.

Maybe after I get my new card from newegg I'll put it up back for sale (of course, not as new )

Please close. Thanks.

I have to say... I'm surprised by how many stories I hear of brand-new cards artifacting. What's causing it? Poor coolers or a generally overheated GPU? Or bad selection in memory?

It seems to be happening way too often.

Is that the pixeling you get?

boy, good thing I just realized that I shafted myself again when I bought a nVidia mobo. It won't run crossfire so whats the point in buying an AMD card(s)...

I really couldn't say what it was. I doubt it was the heatsink, though. Temps were not that bad.
