Sapphire Radeon 5770 Vapor X issues
 
Picked up a Sapphire Radeon 5770 Vapor X edition yesterday. Working fine all day yesterday and today. Well tonight while playing BF BC2 beta I started seeing these flickering black lines. Tried a few other games and the same thing is occuring.. Is this a bad card?

Yes it could be a bad card. Before you RMA it try updating your graphics drivers, reducing the gpu and memory speeds a few mhz and reseating your graphics card. If none of the above make any difference I'd get a replacement. It looks like classic artifacting caused by an overheating or damaged card

Swapped the card today. See how it goes. So far so good.

I was going to say if I got a card that had that kind of display "out of the box" I'd return it pronto. Glad to see you did a total swap.

Good luck!
