6850 display issues

Recently completed a home build, including a XFX 6850 (win7), and and have been losing my display for 3-4 secs at a time. Screen goes black, like it has no input, then pops back up.

I've tried different HDMI cables, moved the video card around, and a couple other little things. Catalyst is updated to latest driver as well. Any thoughts? Something obvious I'm missing? Thanks for the help.

  1. Post the rest of your specs including power supply.
  2. Gigabyte x58-USB3 LGA 1366
    i7-950
    Coolermaster HAF 932 case

  3. PSU in more than plenty for the card and the mobo should also be compatible, only thing I can think of is you got a faulty card, return or RMA it.
  4. I have had the same issue with my XFX 6850 black edition. Loses sync with my monitor for 2-3 seconds and comes right back up. So infuriating when you're in the middle of a game at a crucial point lol. Did you end up RMA or did you find a solution? (wondering what I should do)
