Default Re: XFX 5900XT Strange colors/patters.

Yes I was suspecting the PSU also, but I didn't think the 5900 would be using much power just on boot. I can push the 4200 in a looping 3dmark stress test with no problems, but the 5900 can't even make it into windows sometimes. Is the 5900 really going to be pulling more power even during startup? No I have not done any bios modifications. With the first card I tried overclocking it when I first got it just to see what it could do, but I set them back to defaults and it ran ok for those 6 months. I am just wondering if it could be anything else? Does anybody else have any ideas before I go and buy a new PSU? btw, Thanks for the input jimmor!
