EVGA 02G-P4-3686-KR GeForce GTX 680 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The card worked great, but only for two days.

Cons: Without warning Tribes: Ascend crashed and my screen flickered on and off until I killed the process. A message box alerted me to the problem:

"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 stopped responding and has successfully recovered. "

Unfortunately the problem is now persistent and I can no longer play Tribes: Ascend, let alone more graphically intensive games. That is, I literally cannot play any game for any length of time - The Secret World, Mass Effect 3, GTA IV - nothing gets past the initial splash screen. I can not browse the internet without the same problem occurring every half hour. Customer Support suggested I try the newest beta drivers -- nothing. Rollback drivers -- nothing. This seems to be a problem of some frequency online. A sour taste has been left in my mouth after building what was to be my first gaming rig. I do not look forward to what may be an endless, sisyphean cycle of RMAs

Other Thoughts: Intel i5 3570
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Rosewill CAPSTONE 750W
