I built a system and reformatted the HDD and such. All was good!
However, I then tried to play a game. It's not specific which, because I've tried SEVERAL (across several gaming platforms, as well as some non-tied games).
So, when I try to play a game, the display driver crashed! I then tried to reload drivers, sweeping the old. I tried turning the fan speed up! I then ran a GPU stress test (both evga's and a furmark) for 30 minutes. Came back.
Driver still crashes.
Did I just get screwed with my card? Or another piece of hardware?
The defective card(s) were 9800GT's. I'm not quite sure what they're sending (they don't even know) but it will be greater to the value of the 9800 when I first purchased it (which was about 155 dollars).
