Hey guys - I have a related question!
Here are my specs:
Asus P5W DH
7900GT (3 years old!!)
I am experiencing severe screen flickering during idle (just looking at desktop, running firefox - very light tasks) and terrible artifacts during gameplay. My graphics card is dying for sure.
Here's my question:
My GPU core temp is around 53C idle. When a game boots up, the temp jumps to 60C, and then I start to see artifacts.
Should I look into better cooling solutions? I also want to upgrade to an HD4890 - should I be worried about my computer temps with a more powerful GPU?
I'm going to pull out my GPU and give it a thorough cleaning. I hope this solves the flicker, but I really doubt it will
If you guys have any idea about this screen flicker, any input would be greatly appreciated
