I just upgraded from a gigabyte HD 5450 to a gigabyte HD 6770, 1 gb for both, and now I am having "Display driver has stopped working and has recovered" errors.. used to work just fine with Skyrim, no problems running on "high settings" (i like lower settings). But I was getting very low FPS on SWTOR, like max was 50 if I didn't move and nothing was going on around me.
Now I am getting Black screens and freeze ups for both Skyrim and SWTOR.
Is there a GPU that is in the middle of those 2 cards that might work, or I am better off buying a high end GPU, around $200?
On a note, I put the HD 5450 back in and everything runs fine, well not great but no black screens or "display driver has stopped working"
well I think that made my decision. I re install the HD 6770 since I was using the HD 5450, and on the desktop before i was able to do anything, I saw pixies and had 2 "Display driver" errors before it hard locked on desktop.
I am doing a driver sweep now and re installing drivers and CCC from amd.com. I am going to use the 5450 till I can go exchange the 6770 for a 6850 (hopefully since it was a gift and I have the receipt)
Thanks I will do that when I get home with the new GPU. At work right now (overnights), and then I'll see what happens in those games. I always turn down the settings to medium or low so I am sure that's not the issue. I will keep yall informed.
Thanks for your help.
edit: Is there a GPU you would recommend for:
Intel DH67BL board
600 watt PSU cooler master power plus
8gb corsair MXS3 dual channel 1333hz 10666
