Re: Issues with Nvidia Video Cards - GTX560/460
Nice read. I had a GTX 460 previously before my current r7870. One thing to keep in mind, manufactures (be it msi, or gigabyte, evga etc...) have differing bios revisions. These revisions can be prone to work with certain drivers better than others because clocks and fan speeds interact to a degree with these drivers --- which is why reference cards have less issues generally speaking. Moreover, sometimes with these OEM cards a bios update is needed. Also remember the "latest" is not always the best. I learned that over many years of tweaking and pushing systems with various brands of hardware. Mostly I'm speaking about software (drivers specifically). Right now I'm still running 13.4 cats with the r7870 as I tend to stay about 2-3-4 driver revisions behind, and for good reason too!
