Exclamation ATi cards overheat when using dual displays for gaming, nVidia card EXPLODES

A very interesting article by Tom's Hardware Guide. It seems both nVidia and ATi have graphical glitches when playing games over 2 monitors. The unbelievable thing to me is the nVidia card got so hot it exploded!. Not good, hopefully this is an isolated incident.

During our tests, we literally fried an NVIDIA FX 5950 Ultra. One moment, the card was running just fine, the next there was a loud bang and it smelled as if something had burned. We will investigate this phenomenon further to rule out the possibility of this being a coincidence.

They'll test another card, they'll fry another card.

FX595007: fry another day.

I see this will be a "hot topic" for a while.
