I need some advise I bought gtx 560 from frys 8 days ago I have had nothing but problems with game crashing or artificing n nvr had it with old card n that's the only thing that's changed. Bf3 n skyrim crash after like 25 min of play its not overheating I have afterburner. I used on a new Windows install and have seperatly installed every driver from 270 up to 295 nothing helps it. So my only idea is a bad card I've used driver cleaner so I no its a cleNCH install any ideas should it b crashing that bad if it wasn't a bad card?
System is AMD 965 be Oc to 4.0 MHz
4gb Oc to 1600 MHz
PSU thermaltake tr2 600w
MSI 870u g55
Gtx 560
My CPU barley reaches 80% load n 52 degrees

If you don't have a way to test it on another rig then I would RMA it. Does it do its bit when surfing the net?
Have you used MSI kombustor to stress test it or bench mark it? Just other thoughts. You know your PSU is one of the worst. It come's up on the tier 5 list.

Here is a link to the list.

How about set CPU to default and try you OC by 600mhz possibly problem there.
Also try and connect different power cable to video card (6 pin) maybe even try and use those molex to 6 pin adapter that came with it to test

^ Try all this.

If it does not work then, return it and if the next one does the same thing then it's the really bad power supply. Unless you have another computer to test the card in or another power supply to test in that computer.

Out of curiosity, what was your old video card?

thanks for help, ive ran furmark and heaven bench along with evga stress test and it never failed even when at 100% and 71 degrees. my olg card was zotac 9600GT

i have another rig no where near as good but i can try it i also have another PSU its a coolmax 700w but ive been told its crappy as well thats why i bought this thermaltake the guy at frys said it should be fine

Actually thats not available in store, shipping only. I do not see a single power supply in the 500-600w under $70 range available in the store I would buy.

I would look at newegg and just be patient for a few days before I would buy crap. Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Enermax, Antec, Silverstone or Seasonic are all great choices. Use that Tier list DM186 posted and keep it at tier 2 and up.

My only thought here is if I can run furmark on it at 100% load for over 1hr yet my bf3 wouldn't last that long would it really b my PSU I just am at a loss on ideas here

check the BF3 forums related to game crushes, as always it could be just some bug and has nothing to do with video card or PSU

Best solution

That is also a good idea. I've seen some threads from people who also have problems with BF3. However, I would probably replace the PSU, game bugs notwithstanding. If you try many different demanding games and they still crash, I would probably blame the PSU before I blame the GPU. Anyway, these look like viable replacements depending on future plans:

SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply $59.99

I would pick the Seasonic = Antec High Current Gamer ( tier 2 ) > > Corsair CX ( tier 3 ).
