Radeon HD 5770 Issues

So I put together my pc today, install windows 7 64bit, do a little browsing and it freezes. Hmm. Hard restart then do a little bit more browsing getting drivers etc.. I get a screen with pixely pink verticals. Hard restart.. something's fishy here. Then I get all the new drivers for my mobo, and gpu. Everything's going fine so I install Eve Online which I've been meaning to play for a while. Get to the character creation screen and the screen starts flickering, then getting worse with flashing verticals of different colors.

Now I search the forums and there seems to be a solution in oc'ing the card to stay above the default idle speeds. I tried it but I don't know if I'm doing it right. I went into CCC and changed it to 860/1210. It's 400/1210 when not in 3d and now it only really does it while in 3d but the screen very rarely still flickers a bit in 2d.

I'd like to hear some thoughts on what my problem is. Keep in mind I barely know what I'm doing hehe. :)

Here's the list of components I purchased.

AMD Athlon II X4 630 (Propus) 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quade-Core Processor (Model: ADX630WFGIBOX)

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB 7200RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (Model: ST31000528AS) - OEM

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5770 Video Card 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support (Model: 100283-3L)

Antec Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (Model: Two Hundred v2)

LITE-ON Black 4X Blu-ray Disc Internal SATA Reader (Model: iHOS104-08)

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - OEM (Model: GFC-00599)

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

  1. A 5770 only has a TDP of 108 watts, so I doubt it's a PSU issue, so I'd wager that it's a bad video card.

    If you have another video card to test, I'd highly recommend trying it out. Otherwise I'd RMA the card and get another one.
