My graphics card died :(

The past couple of times playing American Truck Simulator I got horizontal lines across the screen and would freeze up and had to reset the PC. One time the motherboard GPU light flashed red.

Today I updated the video drivers, and ran Furmark a GPU stress test and it did fantastic. Got it up to 188 degrees with no problems! Came home from work and once I turned on the PC the light would stay red. Tried other PCI x16 ports and same stuff. Glad I have an Intel integrated GPU or I’ll be without a working PC!

A nice looking paperweight

This is actually the second time I replaced this card. 1st time on lifetime warranty and now 3 years later this one died.

Thinking about going to Nvidia with my current i7 2700k build. and keep the replacement comparable to the power of the HD7870.
