when I first got my set of 7900GT KO and put the first one in ,it just shorted out so bad that it threw the breaker in my power supply,now ever card that I have put in my motherboard last a couple of days and then just starts messing up with the screen blinking on and off until it blue screens and the reboots ,and when trying to play a game it is slow and jerky and major artifacts ,I have been threw two 7900GT KO and two 7900GTX EGS,
Do you think I may have messed up the PCIe slot on the motherboard when I had that bad short and that is causeing my video cards to go bad ,I just can't see getting four bad cards in a row.

I don't know what is wrong ,is the 7900 just a bad card or did I burn something up when the card shorted out ,I have order a new motherboard ,a new power supply ,a new monitor and a new set of 7900GT SS,maybe with all this I can get a working System again.

After all that it sounds to me like a power issue. Are you running a surge protector on your components? Have you tried a different wall outlet?

The chance of getting 4 bad cards in a row is next to nil.
