I recently purchased (under a month ago) a Sapphire ati hd 4830 (one with 2 dvi ports). Whenever I play any game, I get green artifacts, but the video cards temperature doesn't exceed 59C. Also, the card idles at 33C. I do have it overclocked to 620/1010 from the 575/900; but from what I have heard and read that very slight overclock shouldnt matter. Plus, at default settings I can't play hitman at ultra high (reason I have it overclocked). Could I have a faulty card?

update your drivers. Im pretty sure this is the issue.

You driver sweeper to get rid of any old drivers that are still there and reinstall 9.2 or whatever form ATIs site.

Why don't you check it without any overclock. 4830's have very delicate memory afaik, and slight overclock for memory speed could be the culprit.

yea, the overclock must have caused it. Im now running it at 600/950, and so far there are no artifacts. What is driver sweeper customisbetter?

^old news.

I'm pretty sure the 9800 GTX+ is the GTS 250 if I'm not mistaken.
March 10, 2009 4:59:42 PM

"Though the board design itself definitely has changed, in essence the product is feature and performance wise 98% similar to that GeForce 9800 GTX+, even with the same clock speeds and 128 stream processors, the same 55nm G92b graphics processor. Its clock-speeds are 738/1836/1100 MHz (core/shader/memory), on par with reference 9800 GTX+ speeds. The card will have the same 512/1024 MB of GDDR3 memory and the very same 256-bit memory bus."

that's make me remember something here u know what it
March 10, 2009 5:06:54 PM

I just read the Guru3D review lol.....
March 10, 2009 5:07:47 PM

Don't worry ATi is catching on 2;) lol

Its a recession, expect there to be cut backs.
March 10, 2009 5:08:46 PM

O and those are OEM cards apparently not for individual sale lol.

In other words I guess, GTS 150 for example in a Dell computer, and if you buy it for your custom it will be called GTS 250, atleast thats what I understand.
March 10, 2009 5:12:44 PM

ummm yes, thats why we call em revisions;)

And thats why i said its old news:) 

8800 GT and 8800 GTS were the first to have them, then they branched off, though its very impressive if you think about it, since the 4830 just came out this year to match the 8800 GT.

But it is outplayed for sure:) 

Nvidia will probably release something new when ATI releases a new 4850 equivalent for cheaper or just a plain and simple faster card.

Why would I say its old news if I didn't understand it? lol

Only difference is that your post is OEM versions, but we all knew this was coming from January. well most of us:D 
March 10, 2009 5:22:01 PM

ATI next GPU will be HD 4890(RV790 Core) and 4750 4770 (RV 740 )
the last two will be 40nm GPU
with the same series names .
March 10, 2009 5:34:24 PM

^^ that's what i said read my post again '
any way we talking about the new names nV old card here
March 10, 2009 5:56:49 PM

^k wat?

yeah i know we're talking about Nv, but that doesn't mean we can't name other similarities:D 

Just wait till the 5000s and 300s:D

They are External graphic card not IGP :sweat: 
if some one bought GT 120 (Geforce 9500GT) wit OEM PC ...
and he decide after while to sell it.. so what he will say (i have GeForce GT 120 )or Geforce 9500GT :pt1cable: 


March 10, 2009 6:17:06 PM

Does it matter if its the same card? Call it the GT 120, thats not the problem here, the problem is the buyer and not the seller:D .

Seller if smart, would sell it as 120 GT, since it will be the series name mostly used:D 
But meh, I don't care enough to make judgment.

Next time I'm ever interested in a graphics upgrade will be when i see DX 11 support on the box, or 50% faster than the 285 GTX:D  single GPu)
March 10, 2009 7:16:49 PM

Unfortunately that's what happened :) 
i hope the moderator fix it :sweat:

Obviously one thread is more dominant

It's the same old trick and it's used by all parties, just more often and more clearly in the nvidia camp. But as much as I'd like to say cheats and foul play, it won't change a thing. They'll keep trying to convince people to buy this junk and people will buy it because it's "new"

About the ati card, I have the same problem. The 4850 of mine runs perfectly at stock, but when I OC it, it goes bad, Ati Tray Tools just crash and I get the same artefacts in games too. I just decided to run the monster card at stock as it's good enough and I'd rather have a good card that last long.
