The Warden (Wife) had a problem with her EPoX 9NPA+ computer which had a HIS X1650XT in it but I changed HDD'S thinking that was possibly the random oddity thing. No it wasn't, I pulled the X-Fi, Floppy with no change so I got the "small" (Physically, compared to the ASUS) X1800XT and at the same time changed out the Crucial Ballistix for Corsair PC3200 XL. I guess it was the RAM. I haven't had time to check it yet. But the Warden won't let loose of that X1800XT !

I had a very high OC on a 9500 Pro for nearly two years and it then crapped out. I had mine backed off just a tiny bit from artifact's, I would guess you did your OC after you installed the Zalman. Overclocking is great but it tires the equipment quick.

yea, that is what everyone says. oh well, it was fun while it lasted. the only way i can play anything for longer than 20 minutes is too underclock and undervolt the card, and keep the fan at 100% and lower gaming resolution.

i dont know who told you the ps3 doesnt have anti aliasing because it does. also the 7900gtx is superior to the x1800... and all the ps3 games look 3x as good as the xbox360 games on my 42 inch 1080p tv. thanks though.

it doesnt work that way. the ps3 is an entire system. it is more than the cpu/gpu .

Well I was wrong about the RAM. I put the X1650XT in an new machine (Abit KN9 SLI, AM2 X2 5000+ Blackie, 2 Gig GSKill PC6400 in a New Antec 900 case) The Video card was acting up so I had to put my X1900 XTX in there, made the Warden even happier. The HIS is in NewEgg's RMA process now. I think, if they can't replace it I will pay the difference for a 3870. I have two more boards I think that will need cards and I would like the better one in my main rig...naturally

I tried OCing the core, but it just locks up :p
