Summary: I play one online game... one. Lord of the Rings Online. I built a new PC, as my old one was locking-up frequently. So I bought this card, thinking that it was not only more powerful than what I really needed, it also would be DirectX 11 capable. Well, for months now, I've been encountering a problem where the game freezes, goes to a black screen, and then quite often goes to a screen made up of a band of horizontal colored stripes.
Summary: I searched and thought long and hard about which card to buy, and this seemed to be a great card for the money. The card seemed fine until I fired up my pc and heard an awful noise like the videocards fan was hitting the fan shroud or something. About 5 seconds later my computer shut down. I looked at the card and the fan, and did not see anything wrong, so I restarted the computer and everything seemed fine , this time.
