Hey, folks. I'm stumped.Let me throw some specs at you before I begin.
Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64-Bit
CPU - AMD Phenom II 3.0 4x
GPU - ASUS R9270X 2GB
RAM - 12GB DDR3
PSU - APEVIA ATX-AP800W 12V
I've got this computer I built back in 2009. I've been upgrading it here and there over the years; new power supply in 2010, 4GB RAM in 2013 and in 2014 a new GPU.
I used to have a Radeon HD 5770 card, but the fan on it died and the chip got a little toasty. In the entire history of having it, I never had an issue running two monitors, playing games on max settings and streaming at 720p all at once. No artifacts, glitches or anything. Ever.
Last July I upgraded to the R9270X 2GB card. From the moment I put it in, I had issues. Artifacts, glitches and more such as in many games, looking in certain directions or at different objects would cause things to jump out of the distance and flicker across my screen, rapidly. It never got WORSE, just stayed that way. A few months ago I RMA'd to ASUS. They fixed whatever they thought was wrong and sent the card back (or sent me another card, I couldn't tell.). While it was gone, I used my old Radeon HD 5770 with zero issues. However, the instant I plugged the new / refurbished / fixed/ posessed R9270X back in, the issues came back.
I'm currently in negotiations with ASUS, trying to figure out what to do. They won't make any reccomendations aside from another RMA which - graciously - they are offering to pay the postage for. However, I'm not sure it's the card and want to make sure there isn't something stupid that I'm missing.
If anyone has any assistance they could offer, I would be very grateful. I'm very knowledgeable about computers so it should make the process of holding my hand much easier. Thanks loads in advance.
