random glitches out of no where. Screen moving all crappy and unresponsive areas of windows when using flash like items. I am getting really pissed off. I think I am just gonna go with Nvida from now on and stay there. I never have issues and its been a good card but this is Inexcusable. There aren't really artifacts so it can't be memory. but the page is going up and down as I am typing and new drivers and I am not even over clocked.

Also this is the 6th time this happened and someone told me it was because I was Overclocked and it was that 2d mode that it doesn't like overclocks. This is the first time it has done it in like 2 weeks since I started going back to stock. I still have a warranty but god knows how long that will take to service.

If you think that only AMD cards are susceptible to dying, I have some very bad news for you.

every time I restart it, it seems fine, and I updated drivers. I don't know what it is, Maybe it is flash. It is driving me nuts cause it is very intermittent but I can get it to do it when I do a lot of Flash things. It is the most annoying when all of this sudden I am going through music and I can't click on anything and things get unresponsive. It makes you think drivers or flash issue but it affects the whole computer. How can those 2 things make it that bad? IT did it on the old drivers and brand new ones. Like I said, it is extremely intermittent and it has only happened about 6 times in the past few months or so.

lol. I went AMD this time cause it was the better choice at the time and price. I used Nvida my whole life in pc gaming(since like 2002) but I wanted a chance cause I didn't believe Nvida was all that great and I felt that AMD had better vendor support. It is funny actually. I had a 560TI originally, MSI of course...go figure. and it crapped the bucket in 2weeks and that is when I decided to go AMD/ATI
