    have the same problem, same card.

    Windows 7 Ultimate
    AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor
    AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
    GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990F
    33 C Currently, idle.


    I think it's the drivers, maybe disable/uninstall the display adapter, reboot, re-install updated drivers. I don't know, any tips?

    I get em when I'm playing SWTOR and go on youtube, and bang! blue screen with vertical lines.
  7. Yea I've decided im just going to RMA the video card and go with nvidia this is the first time I've ever gone with ATI and it was a bad choice.
  8. Don't knock off AMD entirely based on this one bit of anecdotal evidence. Both companies have DOA/buggy cards; I wouldn't say one has any more than the other.
  9. +1 to kajabla, my s**ty nVidia card Blew after 3 years.
  10. I went with Nvidia card GTX 560 TI (EVGA FTW)!
  11. Sounds good.
  12. it was the 384 Processor core one though I think this card will compete against 6950 right?
  13. Yep, roughly equivalent. They trade benchmarks, depending on the game.
  14. Ok then for 230$ I got my money's worth :D
