  • Hardware Failure

    Well, to make a long story short, I couldn't figure out why PS2 was crashing while I played along with my system shutting down in the middle of play. Turns out my fan went out on my primary graphics card (XFX 6870), and my backup card (XFX 5870) also failed. So I will be out of commission for a week or so. XFX quality isn't as good as it once was. Good luck killing Purple Perverts and Terran Trailer-Trash.

        GTX 670 or a AMD 7970. I have to get one, since I currently can't play any graphics accelerated games at the moment. I have heard the GTX 670 GHz edition is good bang for your buck vs. the GTX 680. Right now, its looking like the GTX 670 has my name on it. Specifically, going to use this chart:

        Also, for those interested, I will sell the ATI 5870 and the ATI 6870 pretty cheap after they get back from XFX rma. Thinking of 30$ + shipping for the 5870 and 60$ + shipping for the 6870. This will include lifetime warranties to the second owner (which you can register on the xfx website). PM me to talk details.

          I can definitely recommend the Nvidia GTX 670 or 680 for that matter. Both those cards have worked very well for us, hardware and drivers.

            I personally run the 560Ti from Nvidia, and haven't had any issues with it yet.

              The 670 is a good card. I've had it since September, no issues.

                I run an eVGA 560Ti and love it (currently limited by my AMD CPU). I HIGHLY recommend the eVGA brand.

                  Thanks for the reply guys. I went ahead and purchased this:





                  I went with this card for several reasons.



                  Since I am adept at overclocking CPU's and GPU's I wanted a card with decent air cooling and OCing potential.

                  Price was right, $328.00 total cost shipped overnight.

                  MSI makes a really good overclocking utility.

                  Warranty isn't too bad, at 3 years.

                  I should be able to OC this to speeds that rival those of a Radeon 7970.

                  It is a fairly quiet GPU, even under load.



                  Now I hope the install just goes smoothly!
