    Started early in the afternoon some light speckling on my monitor and then a blue scree, reboot led to some real graphic corruption and then it failed to post

    dropped my old vid card in and its posting but its not much cop

    so my mobo is a Gigabyte 970A-DS3 and i have managd to pick up a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti , never been an nvidia fan but it will do for now

    really need to get off the pot and upgrade the whole rig

    Not syre what the issue is fans dd seem to be turning a little slow but figure thats because it hasn't posted for the fan control to kick in, I may just strip it reapply some Arctic paste and see whats happening, historically not had much luck with the 7970's (this is the second to die on me)

    Sucks! I figure a 7970 is still a decent 1080p card for many titles. If it died this Friday and it gets resurrected today, then it's the orthodox church that got the date of Easter right! :D
