    RMA my mobo or vid card, or just keep

    Well, after having issues with my raid0 array and getting windows 7 installed i thought all my hassles were over. Until I started to play Diablo 3 and TERA betas this morning and has some ugly screen issues (attached) the games would cause the screen to split in two and mirror. It did it in diablo 3 as well as in TERA. I figured wtf okay maybe it is the game, so i dl unigen haven and ran it , it did the same thing. So i figured maybe the card was bad, so i back up my vga bios and flashed the modded shaders bios for my card (hoping the vga bios was the issue), issue still persisted but took longer to happen. So i moved my video card down to the pcie-3 slot. Doesn't do it. Moved it up to pcie-2 slot, doesnt do it there. So i move it back to pcie-1 (which the mobo recommends for single vga use) uninstall all AMD drivers, wipe clean, and try again. Still does it almost worst this time.
    tl;dr?

    Graphics card works fine in lower 3 pci-e slots, doesnt work in top pci-e slot. Should i RMA the new board (5 year warranty so no rush) or could it possibly be the video card?? only thing i have NOT done is rolled back drivers and tried catalyst 12.1 or 12.2.... Mobo has most recent bios as well.

    Or should I just roll with my video card in the working slot(s) since i never plan to SLI or XFIRE. Rig prime95'd overnight with no errors also.

    Sidenote this card is a "new" replacement from Gigabyte RMA since they were out of my reference 6950 i sent in for RMA.




    if i drag my mouse over it goes to the other side as if i have two monitors but on the wrong side of eachother.

    I'd slap it in one of the working slots and not worry about it

    Sometimes I get so flustered and worked up I forget the small things, like trying a CMOS clear. Which I did and fixed it... ODD..but if it does do it again i'll just drop it in the lower slot and call it a day, i guess thats why they gave me four slots lol
