  1. Do you have two cards or just one?
  2. Download GPUZ (free download) this will tell you what your bandwidth is. As long as this is correct then its not really an issue.

  3. I've had this happen a few times. It's always been a seating issue for me. I had to use compressed gas in the slot last time, before reseating my card, and it fixed my issue just fine.

    I missed it because it was in lower case and things like that are usually posted in caps. The point still stands though if the bandwidth is ok then there is no issue.
    Im so glad to be in the company of someone who has never ever missed anything on the forum before :kaola:
