More about3870 working same
It could be
1) your PSU is going bad already. 2) Your videocard is going bad. (videocards over time lose there power) 3) is it overheating? 4) do you have a virus? run a virus scan and a spyware scan. 5) defragment your computer.
that's all I know of.
i just got the card like 1 week ago and the psu yesterday,,the card doenst seem to be sucking the right power out of the psu
