Onto topic 1: After about 20-30 minutes of playing a game i get bad artifacting and have to restart to see the screen so far it does this in FEAR, Stalker, Trackmania nations, CS Source and Warcraft 3. The weird thing is the temperatures only get up 2 60-70 which didn't cause artifacting with my old card.
Topic 2: In some games my keyboard just does anything it wants for 4 seconds and then returns to normal but soon does it again after about a minute or so. Now being a very enthusiast FPS gamer thos 4 seconds could be the diference between life and death.
What i've tried: For topic 1: I tried purchasing a Zalman vf 700 CU cooler and fitted it, i tried turning down the voltages, using the stock cooler on aeroplane noise levels but i still got the same thing, tried putting a fan just outside the computer blowing full blast, got the latest drivers for the Card and got the latest patches for the games.
Topic 2. Re-installed windows, bought a USB Keyboard.
Any suggestions would be great thanx guys.
