Is there GFX diag tool?
A while ago I upgraded my graphics card and recently I bought a few extra bits and pieces to make use of the old one in a second pc.
It is a sapphire x1950 pro 256MB pci-e, anyway having assembled my second pc installed the OS and drivers etc i ran some graphics stress test (no overclocking) all of which crash after 5 or so seconds in.
I assumed it was a heat issue and so bought a replacement heatsink and fan (zalman vf700-ALCu)
It is now as cool as a cucumber 32c at idle to 40 odd under stress (so sayeth GPUZ)
but the crashing remains.
I have managed to play HL2 for an hour or so with decent frame rates.
Incidentally It has been sat in draw for many months in its original packaging beforehand.
so I wondering if there is a method of finding out if the card is damaged or whether the problem lies in software.

All help is greatly appreciated.
I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, 1st post.
