My System Specs


So, Galaxy's RMA department tested my original card running 3DMark, and couldn't report any errors. I advised them to run Heaven, and see what happens. Their rep is telling me that it's probably a fault with my system that is causing the instability.

The problem is that I've tested my 680 in two separate machines (my original AM3 platform, and my HTPC FM1 platform) and it exhibits the same instability.

Also, I'm currently running that 6950 in my main system, and it's running flawlessly.

I realize that the chances of the same error occuring in two cards back to back in obscenely low, but it seems that is what is happening. It's a pity Galaxy can't seem to detect it.

I'm at a loss of what to do. I'm sitting here with a $500 card that is useless to me. I can't conscionably sell it, and transfer all these problems to someone on the 'off chance' that it works fine in their system. I can't use it, as BF3 will crash every few minutes.

I just hope Galaxy steps up and helps me out again...
