    Exclamation Radeon HD 6950 - Weird issue in all games!

    Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz
    DG31PR Intel Motherboard
    4GB DDR2 Kingston RAM
    Radeon HD 6950 - 1GB Powercolor (Liquid Cooling pre-installed)
    Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

    I have this weird problem with any game I play with this new GFX card. I open up a game and when it gets to rendering ANY type of Graphics, or sometimes when in the menu it like gives me these weird fady white flashing sabers/lines across my screen. I also get sudden framerate drops occassionaly. This happens accros all games.

    Examples:

    Assassin's Creed Revelations
    Battlefield 3
    Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 3
    Skyrim

    I am really frustrated, and need help with this problem.

    I tried taking screen shots and videos of game footage and surprisingly there are no flickering fady flashing effects what so ever. I tried changing the refresh rates in the games I play and in the Windows control panel.

    Thank you for reading, please help me as soon as you can.

    (The pictures are fine, but that's what kills me! )

    What's your PSU? Those white lines in the menus are called artifacts which indicates your GPU is having problems within the hardware, either the GPU is overheating or the GPU is misconfigured (as in too overclocked) and as for your sudden frame drops, your processor is not capable of utilizing the full potential of your card, now it'll be interesting to know what your PSU is, all of the things I've mentioned above are merely speculations and might not be the case.

    Default Thanks for your quick response XD

    Thanks for your instant response, when I posted this thread; right after it I shutdown my computer. I had two PSUs 350W and 450W, the 350 was inside came with the computer. so when I got the 6950 I needed more power, so I just connected it to the 450W which is outside the computer. I short circuited the two holes in it so it would work as if it were connected to a Motherboard. Now I have only one PSU 450W inside my computer connected to my GFX card and everything else.

    I'll try some games and do some tests and tell you my results.

    *Fingers crossed*

    Whoa what!!! Dude that is seriously risky for a 6950

    You should have used a 550W PSU like Delta, Fortrex, Thermaltake or other major brands outside, 6950 sucks a lot of power.

    You should buy a Delta or Thermaltake 500 Watt psu (minimum) but it would be better to buy a 550-600 Watt psu asap.

    Delta PSU can be found in Binary Logic for 5-6K.

    change ur psu's unhook the 350w and get a delta or xfx 550w for 6k..
    And u can also keep the 450w in dual... Or just sell it...
    Mind u the 6950 requires 500w of raw power and overclock the cpu as it is being bottlenecked..

    And you sure both the PSU provide 800W in total? :/

    Get a solid PSU before you fry your GPU.

    Ok as I said I already managed everything into 1 PSU 450Watts.

    Now there's a different thing.

    I am playing Assassin's Creed Revelations right NOW, and I am getting 28 FPS in open places! WHY?! shouldn't my GPU get more???\

    Everything is Maxed out!

    The 450W unit that you are talkin about, what kinda 450w unit is this thing? The generic psu kinda 450 or an actual 450w capable unit? Even if it's a real 450, you 're not doing justice to the card. And you're seriously bottlenecking that 6950 with the rest of the hardware u got there, it's like u put a dodge vipers' 8k cc engine under an allion's hood, the screen tearing is inevitabe. For the time being you may enable vsync to get rid of screen tearing at the cost of current frame freq.

    I know that the most expensive thing about my computer is my GFX card, and yes it is 450Watts capable and I'll get more! and I do not experience any tearing.

    By the way, I made the specs the LOWEST and I get the EXACT same FPS!!!

    I wish I could get a new Core i5, but then I'll need a new Motherboard to support it, and then DDR3 RAM and whattya know, I don't have any money :'(

    I'll just save up then and get a quad-core Core-i5, which will automatically and without a doubt mean new MB and new RAM so yeah!

    Will take 2 years. Jokes, I'll just see how it goes.

    Thank you guys, I'll be getting a totally new computer.
    I always had a feeling from the start that I am kind-of limiting my computer's ability with the rest of the components. If I had the money I would've upgraded already but now that I know that it's necessary. I'll do it!

    Thank you guys for your help, you've been of great support, at least some of my issues are fixed for now; and I know what to do next

    If you don't wanna fry your precious GPU, buy a PSU ASAP.
    What's the max TDP of 6950?

    I guess a 650W would be good.
