Angry Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread

Just got my Asus GTX280 replacement and.... it hard locks just mins into any 3d game! Ambient temps about 48 degrees Celsius before games, then my PC Hard-Locks and powers itself off! Put my 8800GTS 512 back in and it works perfectly!

And this is the replacement for the other card was doing the same thing... kind of makes you wonder how Nvidia can drop the ball so badly with Q+A, I pray this is just a driver problem because they REALLY need to fix it up, I bought the GTX for playing games not for browsing Windows and the internet, which I might add it is really good at ! This is after buying a new 850W PSU as well, extra cost for a 2nd faulty GTX, not what I would expect from Asus or Nvidia, always been a fan of both!

Don't tell me I have to try to get my store to give me a 3rd replacement? They are starting to get a little suss as it is!
