04NickySP2 Posted July 15, 2006 Posted July 15, 2006 Hello All. I've recently been battling the dreaded artifacting problems with the nVidia 7900GT cards. I'm trying to run them in SLI and everytime I enable SLI and try to game (Oblivion, TOCA3, BFME2) I start artifacting after a few minutes. After the first time the problem started I tested each card by themselves. I found one good and one bad so I thought hey no problems I will just RMA the thing. Well after 4 bad RMA cards that would artifact with just that card installed I finally received the new updated eVGA 256-P2-N583-AR replacement. I installed it alone last night and was able to play Oblivion for almsot 2 hours before I shutdown to pop in the second card. Only two minutes into Oblivion I started artifacting. I tested each card about 4 hours with 3dmark06 and I can't get either one to artifact while being the only card installed. Now to my questions. Is it possible that I'm effected by the Expert SLI problems? Could I just be overloading the PSU and the gfx cards are starving for power? Should I try running to the local PC store and picking up another motherboard to test? Thanks in advance everyone! Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
