Ok, last week i had problem with this card which crash on most game except RTS game. I have tried almost every fix on how to get rid of "Display Driver Stop responding and have recovered".
Then yesterday i underclocked (did i said it right) my GPU clock from 900mhz to 850 mhz. And the problems disappeared YAAYYYY...
it's not such a big deal cause i didn't notice a drop in performance, but of course it will hamper any option for me to OC my card.
Now my question is, what causing this ?
Any responds will be appreciated, thanks.
