I bought a Radeon 6870 from gigabyte about a year ago and thought it was a decent card. well its starting to get some black dots on the screen, Sometimes the whole page is black like internet explorer is black and everything else is fine, and whenever I refresh the screen the dots go away. If any body could help me that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Why are you downloading your drivers from the Gigabyte website?

looks like artifacts from overheating or overclocking. check your temps with hwmonitor or msi afterburner. It could be bad ram on the video card also.

well I sent in a rma just incase I couldn't get someone on here to suggest a fix for it. I just hope they give me another card instead of attempting to fix it.

lol, you're always suppose to download the latest drivers from AMD's website, not the drivers on the OEM's site.

you can do it either way, but the one on the OEM's site are exactly the same, but normally it takes them a bit longer to get them up on the site.
