    Sup guys purchased a xfx 5850 a few months ago, had some issues this past week a stick of ram died and now my motherboard postcode reports C1-C3-26 which tells me to reseat or replace the GPU, so thinking of buying a new one would like to be 100% sure as I already bought a new mobo and it wont post in that either.

    got a mates PC you can try it in? testing in at least one other completely different system would be a prudent measure IMO.

    gonna try grab a mates card and try it in my board to see if it boots, guess I would be getting absolutely nothing if the CPU is dead though?
