    Did I just burn..

    .. my GPU?

    So, I have this 4y old pc (no laugh, OK?)

    i5-3570K
    Z77 Extreme 4 MOBO
    Nvidia GFX Zotac 670 2GB
    8GB 1600 DDR3

    This thing has served me fairly well for the past 4 years, haven't had any real troubles with it.
    Anyway, I got this game Total War: Warhammer, which can be pretty taxing but due to optimalisation of the game I was still able to churn over 30 FPS on mostly HIGH settings - which to be honest is pretty something.
    As with all new games Nvidia had a day one driver up so downloaded that.

    I played the game like a real no-lifer as of Tuesday until yesterday - that's 28hrs per your info. I had the week off, except for today.

    Anyway, no issues, all fun and giggles. Now today I loaded it up again and screen went black. I still could hear background so pc was still running, just no visual.
    I rebooted, screen froze everything got stuck.

    Rebooted again in safe mode, no issues there. Figured might be a drivers issue. Did a system restore back to 05.23.2016, no luck.
    Manually installed new Nvidia drivers (yea, the correct ones) - pc restarted.

    Native resolution (1080p) is gone. Went to check upon my 'devices'.
    There's an exclamation mark on my GFX reading:
    Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
    When troubleshooting, it wants to instal new drivers, but after doing so it needs reboot. After reboot it's back to the exclamation mark and wants to reinstall them once again.

    I deleted the GFX from the devices, did hardware scan. Reinstalled, but same issue persists.

    Any tips and tricks?

    1070 isn't out for another month .. ..

    It doesn't support dx12 though o:
    But it'll do the job for now ^^

    Edit: Nvm, it does xD yah, wait for the update. They shouldn't take tooooo long (I hope)

    Edit2: To get the time run faster: Install a GBA / GBC emulator on your smartphone. Pokemon all the way! xD

    Yeah, even though the gtx 970 (also €100 more expensive) is faster than the amd one, this amd still supports dx12 which the 970 doesn't. Plus, for 200 bucks can't go too wrong (i hope).
    Don't feel like spending much more than that - since new architectures etc. are coming out in just a few weeks (for crying out loud).

    Hoping it will bridge me till 1070's are fully out by MSI/Zotac and the likes along with the full dx 12 drivers and shizzle - depending on how this might run I can wait bit longer still, idk. 4GB isn't too little either and mind you, i'm only at 1080p.

    Might upgr. to 144hz in future but meh.

    Also, stop laughing :[ I bet rohan still runs on this i5-3570k integrated graphics >.>

    I can now watch my bot playing for me for the whole weekend. Awesome!
