Hello, I have had an XFX Radeon HD 6770 for about six months now and the card it appears burnt out on me. Originally there was a burning smell coming from my PC this past friday while playing SWTOR, and my first diagnosis was the PSU due to the scent coming from it and intense heat. Ordered a new one, and after installing it yesterday, realized that psu wasnt the problem, because the scent was still there. After checking the computer again, I focused on my 6770 and realized that the scent came from there. Removed it, put in the old psu and tested it, ran fine. Now the next day, the same scent came back. Could there be residual smell from the 6770 when it burnt up, should I just switch to the new PSU and see if that resolves it. Furthermore, what kind of response can I get from XFX customer support regarding this issue, really enjoyed this card and don't have the money to replace it. Thanks for all the answers and advice!

Why don't you check the temperature? XFX should be able to replace it if it's faulty.
Is there a way to check the temperature on the computer? Haven't figured that part out. I know the BIOS could tell me maybe, but what about on the OS shell? I'm running Windows 7 64 bit
