Graphics card overheating?

I think the cards had it. My comp usually below 95 degrees. Messed with drivers, and a whole lot of other stuff, got it down to the hardware. I dont wanna buy a new card.

Damn, Postal.
I had that happen with 2 Geforce 4 Ti4400 cards over a period of 10 months.
Both times it was the GPU that went bad.
(Thank God for the warranties.)
When I opened up this thread and saw the screenshots,
I winced remembering that same damned corrupted video output look.
I finally replaced the power supply and the problem stopped happening.
At that time I had the generic 420Watt PS that shipped with the case.
I went out and bought a Thermaltake and the problem stopped.

Get an enermax or other quality PSU. It needs to have over 20A on the 12V rails.

your video card should still be under warranty via the manufacturer since you bought it less then a year ago. And most offer 2-3 year warranties on their video cards too so yeah. You'll only have to pay for shipping. You can also try for a cross-ship option which they charge a certain amount for deposit, but you'll get your card faster then having to wait for 3 weeks.
