Help - newb bought used computer and needs advise Tags: Graphics Cards Computer Graphics Last response: January 20, 2012 1:34 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Michilius January 20, 2012 12:53:44 AM All, I just received a computer I purchased through this website, here are the specs. Intel Core i7 2600 Gigabyte GA-z68x-ud3h-b3 8GB DDR3 1333 RAM Galaxy gtx 460 Corsair 600T Case Corsair TX v2 750 watt Power Supply Adata S510 120GB SSD Asus DVD+RW I started up the computer with the video going through the 460 and here's how it looked: http://www.flickr.com/photos/74744331@N03/6728733123/ The parts that actually show the windows boot screen are where I have recently dragged my mouse I then removed the 460, sent the video through the mobo, and there were green flockering dots all over the place, as you can see here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/74744331@N03/6728733277/ Is this computer simply a dud, or is this the kind of problem that can be fixed?
