hello everyone, out of the blue my gtx 260 crashed and will now only display in 16 bit colour mode. i currently own a xfx 5830 and an idea poped into my head. the bad gtx 260 which i have here, i am wondering if i can still use it for a dedicated physx card. i just thought i should ask if any of you guys have been successful in similar cases

this is a video of how my card displayed after a reboot.

just to be safe i tried the same card in several different systems

i dont wanna write if off as a dead card just yet maybe it can be but to some use :) 

thanks.

still on warranty? no?

You can try cleaning that card and re-apply the thermal paste, see if that help...
