Hi there,>>

I have read through the sticky, and select posts about this issue. I hav ehad to format around 10 times since March, due to other issues.
I have a Gigabyte radeon 7870 OC, bought in March. Had some issues with it, e.g. flux on the back of it and had it returned for another same card via >>

Since then things have been okay not great, but I did notice at times that when the pc monitor shuts off, (for power saving) >>

And I come to move the mouse, the monitor doesn't wake up from that. I'm either forced to press the reset switch, and only once this worked when I pressed sleep button my keyboard, and press any button and the computer came back. >>

Today while browsing on the web I got a message saying the Atikmpag.sys crashed......  and the computer rebooted. I got this a few weeks ago too. >>


I'm really annoyed with this, want to think that Amd is good but having a hard time... .also to mention that I get a lot of texture popping in 3d games, 2 year old ones and sometimes missing textures. I am in touch with Gigbayte tech support but unsure of what will happen.>>

> >


Asus p8h77-v (latest bios)
4 sticks Gskill ram, (I've tested the memory with windows tester twice, and memtest, its okay)
3 wd hard drives>>
agree fax modem
OCZ modxstream pro 700w>>
i5 3570
windows 8 pro (with latest updates) 
Gigabyte 7870 OC, with cats 13.4
Several fans in the case, temps all seem within spec, even according to Gigabyte.

Thank you for any help
