    760 should be a beast. Shame the exiting card didn't work out, but no use if your usage scenario doesn't work with it. Make sure the AMD drivers are well cleaned off!

    Thankfully, I discovered Guru3D's DDU tool will post the card tomorrow, await refund (hopefully before the end of next week...) then order a 760

    Come to think of it, I don't suppose any EG supporters could do me a deal on a 760? Obviously can't order through the school as it's a personal purchase... @VeryPC @Millgate

    Going to phone Overclockers and explain the situation, a new card isn't going to help as it's the drivers causing the issue, so hoping to do a swap for an NVidia card (preferably looking to get some kind of deal on a 760, obviously paying the difference)

    EDIT: well it took some arguing to get a refund and even then it was only because I pointed out I opened the RMA within their 14 day guarantee period, they just weren't having it that their tests would not necessarily be relevant as they don't have my exact system, especially as it's a driver problem. Going to return for a refund and then pay the 50 difference for a 760 from eBuyer (got an ASUS model for 194 at the moment). I suspect I may have issues with my PSU and a 760, but I should be able to swap out the 600w from my main PC. Nightmare!
    Get that AMD ( A Messy Driver ) swapped for an NVidia
