    Well, I'd call PNY and ask them about it, im sure its still under warranty.

    Then update to 53.03 drivers, that might do it.

    yea i called pny but they gave me the same run around nvidia did...they said it had to do with the frequency of my set up...both were in denial.. i've changed this card out and i am using a temporary radeon 9800 xt i borrowed from a friend..this is a wide spread problem from what i hear from pny.... "if it is so wide speread", i asked " why did you guys continullay produce the 5900 ultra's knowing there was a major problem with some of the cards ?".... all i got back was silence... truth is... the 5900 ulta was a rush job to beat out the radeon 9800's that were about to hit the shelves... thats why they came out with the 5950 and 5960 right afterwards...to fix the glitches they let get through with the 5900 ultra.
    i'm not taking any chances with nvidia anymore... its a dollar thing to them...
    thats why they don't even post their own driver fix they created on their own websight...
    for some of you who have this card and it is working ok.. i applaud you, your one of the few....i just seen benchmarks today that proved the ati 9700 pro is faster than that card in alot of applications and games... do the research...i did .. -peace

    Umm the 5950 was released a good 6 months or more after the 5900.

    There is no 5960.

    The 5900 is faster than the 9700.

    And, just install driver 53.03 and be done with it.

    :rolleyes2

    What power suppy unit do you have? If its an unstable cheapy it could and would cause both flickering and game lockups, but ofcoarse thats only one of several things that could be creating your problems.

    there is a 5960..so your wrong there ..... i know because i'm looking at it now... ... i have a 500watt power supply....so that is not the problem ... and as far as the 53.03 drivers ... they told me not to use it because that driver bumps up the temp of the card 6 degrees ..... and also , about the 9700 pro being faster than the 5900 ultra ..... do a google search on the test that pc gamer did on both cards ... even though the 9700 is at a slower clock speed .... it killed it in some games ...

    Then go get a 9700 if you think its so great.

    I challenge you to beat me in any benchmark or game. We can race cards, I'm not afraid.

    And......LOL @ 5960. You are delusional.

    let me put this simply...

    There is no GeForce FX 5960 at this time. If there was, don't you think it would be on Nvidia's site somwhere?

    This is all there is the in the 5900 series:
    • 5950 Ultra
      5900 Ultra
      5900
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
