Hi, I just got a new 7950 twin frozr but it occasionally flickers or shows small artifacts while using desktop applications. I have a new build almost ready so I haven't tried much as far as games yet, but from what I have tried, it has no issues there.
Searching online, it sounds like other owners of these cards have been having similar odd issues as well. My question is, could it be related to power input where my new build may not encounter problems? I'm currently running PCI-E 1.1 and also using the included 8>6 pin adapter (this is the version with 7970 pcb with 1x6-pin and 1x8-pin). So could using PCI-E 3.0 and a full 8-pin remedy it, or is it likely just a problem with the card?
