    Default GTX 660 dead?


    Some months ago, I got a GTX 660 card from EVGA.
    About three weeks ago, it started giving image corruptions and shortly after that even Windows wouldn't boot anymore.

    I've RMA'd the card to EVGA. They've confirmed the issue and sent me a replacement card.
    Today I've installed this card but after about an hour of desktop-only usage the same error started again.
    I'll bring this error to EVGA's attention again, but because this happens now the second time, and this time right from the start, I'm starting to wonder if something else in the PC could be the reason for this.

    The corruptions are visible right from the booting on, so it's most certainly no overheating. It's also happening during boot and in BIOS, so it's not driver-related. I don't overclock, all standard.
    Below are some shots of how the corruption looks like.

    If it's really related to the card, I'm badly surprised that EVGA sent me a replacement card after RMA that breaks within one hour use.
    Did anyone see these types of issues before and what was the reason for it?

    Thank you!

    if you are using 320.18 drivers, this is probably the cause

    What brand and model number is your power supply? How old is the psu?
    It's possible that your psu is failing.
    Can you borrow and test with a high quality power supply?
