  1. hi,
    i have had my 8800gt for 6 months now and i have been experiancing texture corruption and usually followed by a crash, the corruption occurs in crysis, supreme comander and very rarely in COD 4. i dont think it is heat related. i recently changed from a modded 177.79(NO PHYSX) to 178.13 (with PHYSX). i have a OCZ Slientstream 500 watt psu and a thermaltake 250 watt pure graphic card power psu, i am running xp sp3 x32. can someone help me with resovling this issue

    What is your motherboards model? Who made the 8800GT?

    The motherboard is an ASROCKPENRYN1600SLI and my 8800gt is manufactured by 'Point Of View'

    The memory on the card might be busted, Just send in for RMA !!! no worries!

    UK, but i think it might be heat, which are good 8800gt coolers for about £15 inc postage

    nVidia have wide range of cards that had a bad production run, resulting in failure. Might be worthwhile to try RMAing it.
