I've always been a die-hard nVidia fan because everything always seemed to work. Now that bitcoinland has made me sell off all my nVidia cards because they weren't making me any money, I keep having these crazy problems with these Radeons! I got home from buying three 6870s from the store, brand new, and popped one in a computer. Screen came up like a rainbow, but only after I installed the driver for it. I take the second card out of the box, try it in the computer, same issue, after I install the driver I get this rainbow screen of death
. The first PC had an Asus Maximus Formula, and so I tried it on a tower with a DFI LanParty NF4. Same exact problem, rainbow! Tried a card on my mom's computer, an Asus P5L or something. Boom, rainbow screen with a driver, didn't matter which one of the three brand new cards I try, I can't seem to install the driver on any of them. Then I try using a VGA connector instead of a DVI. Works like no problem in any scenario.
BOO RADEONS. Why won't they just work like GeForce! GeForce never got bitchy over VGA! BOOO
JUST MY HUMBLE OPINION.
