Was wondering if anyone could help me out was having a problem with screen flickering, waviness, tearing, black screening aswell. (Playing wow at ultra settings with multisampling at 8x)

Monitor is a HP2009m (16x9) res.

Card is a Toxic HD 5870 2GB

Windows Home Premium i7 930

Default settings for card is (GPU clock is 925MHz) (Mem clock 1225MHz) (Fan speed is 75%)

Card never gets hotter than 52c

All drivers are updated have the 10.4 Catalyst

Well, do similar things happen in other games? If not, I'd try using an older driver, Catalyst 10.1 or 10.3. If it does, then I wouldn't really know sorry.

Yes, try it with the older drivers, the latest one is not always the best. :)

What do you expect when you keep buying cheapo power supplies? Ultra and Xenon are two of the worst psu's on the planet.

The power supply is the most important part of the system. Yet you trust your components to junk.





The worst power supply in the planet is running the computer fine now with an uninstall and reinstall of catalyst 10.4 :kaola:
