Hi guyz,
From many days I am puzzled lil bit. My card GTX 560-Ti making weird problem due to unstable driver and getting hotter while gaming. I heard about AMD cards that they are cooler and quieter and more stable and reliable so according to budget if I sell my card, I can only buy 7770 Ghz in that price which is slightly slower than mine but 7850 is much better but there is no 1GB version of 7850 so 2GB is lil expensive and out of my range.

So,
Should I stay with mine GTX

or

Sell GTX and move to 7770 Ghz

or

Wait for 1GB version of 7850 and then sell it and get that?


Need your opinion & reasons!




Thanks.

What kind of problem do you actually have? Can you RMA it or something?

Hey Taimoorali007, if the driver is unstable, have you tried reverting to an older, stable version?

I see you have the OC edition to the 560ti (which, by the way, 560ti stock is a better card than the 7770 stock). If it is too hot, you can try reverting to stock clocks (or a less aggressive OC).

If you do decide to sell, please let the buyer know about these issues. :)

How high is the temp? I don't see a reason to downgrade a perfectly good gpu, but if you think you need to change it, i would wait for 7850 1gb.

Dude, I tried all drivers from 266 to 295 but what I checked 294 is ok, didnt get that pinky thing again but my temps. I think are high 44c on idle and on 60% load 60c+ reaches, and heard that AMD cards are much cooler and stable in terms of drivers so I that planned to buy 7xxx card!


Frankly, I am nV boy! I dont know why all say that nV is crap and blah blah blah but I love nV, I think nV performance is much better and tech wise they are in the lead but the thing is I need stable card cuz now my dad will not let me to upgrade or buy new card if something happens to it!

That's all!

Just need stable and reliable thing :)  AND M COMPLETELY PUZZLED WHAT TO DO!!!! :S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S:S

Pink stuff? What pink stuff? Please describe your issue in as much detail as you can.

I don't know where you heard it, but actually nvidia cards have better drivers and generally run much more stable.

Lastly, 60C for a GPU is very low actually, I wouldn't be worried until 85C+.

Thnx, it means my temps. are okay, nothing to worry about :) 

Actually the issue was:

"The Pinky"
While streaming online like on youtube or sometimes playing games, screen used to get pink and pixelate and after couple of seconds, message comes that Driver was not Responding and Recoved! But it got worse as if pink screen comes, I have to restart my PC.

Your graphics card is faulty. It will be covered by the warranty service, just bring it to them. It has nothing to do with nvidia being bad, you're just unlucky that you got a faulty part (those happen, even though it's rare).

Do a complete clean install of the latest drivers, which are 301.42 WHQL. They fix an older problem called "pink screen of death" (not sure if that what you are getting). In general, if you are blaming the problem on drivers, it's more likely a driver installation problem. Do a full clean install of the 301.42's after first uninstalling your existing drivers. With the latest drivers you'll also get Adaptive VSync and FXAA.

If the 301.42 WHQL drivers don't work, try the BETA ones.
