    I'll perhaps look at the beta BIOS later on.

    There has been the suggestion on another forum that the power supply may not be powerful enough to supply the card, what do you think about this? There isn't much going on inside the box, GFX card, CPU, 1 x SATA HDD, 1 x Optical drive, USB front panel, USB mouse & Keyboard, stereo jack headphones

    The review for this card at 3DGuru estimates the power consumption of this card as 137w under full stress at the out of the box overclocked settings - MSI Radeon 6850 Cyclone Power review

    I don't think its psu,if your pc isn't overclocked then 600w is more than enough,does it say on the graphic card box the minimum recommended psu?

    Minimum recommended supply by the card manufacturer is 500w, folks on the other forum said you should always add 30% onto this figure...I can pm you the link to that forum if you'd like to view the discussion there (I dont think TT would take to kindly to me posting a link to another tech forum publicly).

    Forgot to mention, the card has been at it's most stable when using older drivers with AA turned off, AND when the card has been underclocked to the 'standard edition' defaults of 775Mhz Core and 1000Mhz Memory. The 'Limited Edition' OC out the box defaults are 860MHz Core and 1100Mhz Memory.

    the only way to know for sure is test with a bigger psu,maybe because the card is overclocked its using more juice
