The problem has been fixed. Thank you so much for your help.
One thing I'm concerned with is the temp. The card idles in the mid 40s which is fine, but when its under load it shoots up to 88. This is higher than seems normal for the card. Is this real bad?
Mine only gets up to 77c under load
If I clock it to 950/1400 and pump the fan to %100 it only gets up to 70, well, I've never seen it that high but I assume it might get that hot.
Pretty powerful card, I got mine for $135 and I can't complain because it was just too cheap
I have had issues though, but only enough so that I know I should've stuck with nvidia not so much that I'm going to replace it. Having DX11 rocks and Dirt 2 is gorgeous.
