It isn't fair to get a duff product and trounce it. If your motherboard is ancient or you dont have enough power, space in your case to cool you will have issues.
I have had my one of these for 3 years and it has run flawlessly.
If you are buying a card now, you might want to buy one of the newer versions but if you are gaming don't fall into the trap of buying a newer card with far fewer gaming related features so do your homework.
Don't forget to update your drivers and make sure you have a powerful enough power supply.
I went on the ati site and to see if i could fix the issue i started by downloading the new version ccc and drivers 8.10 with the same end result
I decided to search to see if anyone else had the same issues and was amazed, thousands of people who have bought this card world wide are suffering with the same issues,
After digging deep for a solution ati said that the bios on the card may need updating, this is not very easy to do, as you have to go into dos and flash the bios there with a downloaded file, I decided not to do this. As the card is almost the same price as xbox 360 and ps3, when they get sent out they work.
why should i have to repare or reprogram a card i pay £170 for, fine to update drivers but this problem goes deeper. Avoid this brand and go with one with no issues.
