GTS 250 & 120hz monitor producing "purple Snow" Tags: Nvidia Hardware Graphics Cards Monitors Graphics Last response: June 18, 2012 4:02 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Viro June 18, 2012 1:04:15 AM I am unsure which hardware is failing on this so forgive me if this is a simple answer. I recently purchased the Samsung SA700 23" monitor & when I attempt to put it in 120hz I end up with this purple, snowy screen. Otherwise when it's 60hz, it works fine. The Video Card I been using is the Geforce GTS 250. The card has been working fine for me for the last 2 years. Both Hardware is up to date on drivers as well. Further note: I called Samsung & they were claming that it's the video card. Would I need to upgrade the video card to handle the 120hz?

Unless you really really really really really care about playing at 120hz, then its not a really big deal, and its not worth an upgrade. What games are you playing? Viro June 18, 2012 4:02:07 AM Mostly just playing SWTOR. I was concerned when I saw the Purple snow So I just wanted to make sure which hardware was causing the issue. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
