Right ive tried the first card that came with my machine and no problems at all .I put the newest card in and it crashes after about 5 mins .Does this mean the card is faulty its a xfx gtx 260 216 core edition .??

Are both cards the same ? (GTX 216 SPs) also does the second card(new one) crashes in single mode?

First of all you can't SLI a GTX 192 core with a GTX 216 because the cards have to be the same(if you want to know more,read the SLI/CF FAQ, link is in my sig)
And if the GTX 216 crashes alone, then it might be a faulty card

I contacted xfx before i bought this card and they said as long as its a gtx 260 you can sli any of them .But yeh its looking like the card as it blank screens on its own as a single card too .thanks .

oops my mistake,i double checked the SLI compatibility and you can SLI a GTX 260 192 SP with a 216 SP model,(it will perform like 2 GTX 260 192 SP),Sorry about my mistake.(Edited my post)
But like i said if the new cards crashes in single mode,then it could be faulty

Hello just to clarify what the problem was with my xfx gtx 260 card .I bought the 2nd card off ebay and unfortunatly it was a faulty one .I registered the card with xfx and asked numerous questions about the card and i must admit xfx was very very helpful indeed. In the end i sent the card to them for testing and they gave me over £100 for the faulty card and i had to purchase another from there xfx site ,they do refurbished cards with a 12 month warranty.I ended up with a better card an xfx gtx black edition overclocked for £30 IN THE BOX WITH A FREE GAME AND ALL DRIVERS AND CABLES LIKE BRAND NEW .....
I would recomend XFX support . :)
