update 320.18 or higher wrecks this card!!
on 8 November 2013
Ok, so i bought one of these cards around 5 months ago, started off great, awesome card, until i updated via nvidea experience. After update, half my games no longer worked, world of warcraft, Rift, mass effect 3 and many others. over the weeks after it got worse so i contacted Amazon and they sent me a replacement card, same model. the new card has been fine for just over a month as i was afraid to update it at all. i took the risk a couple of weeks ago and updated. the card started showing similar symptoms to the first one i had. now the card barely works at all, wont play most of my games and pc freezes again etc until force powered off. I have done tons of researched on-line and it seems many others have similar issues with nvideas BAD drivers. I have contacted amazon again today to hopefully get a replacement or refund. I had to buy a new card recently, a sapphire HD 7950, plugged it in and ALL the crashes have gone, all my games etc work. run many tests with 3 different pc builds and 3 different gfx cards. its definitely bad drivers, so beware people. updating this card can effectively brick it and make it useless. I currently have 2 GTX 650 TI's now sitting on my cupboard, basicly useless!
