    Need conformation on probable gpu glitch

    aidskillz

      Hello and happy new year!

       

      So, got myself a new PC a week back:

      OS: W7 x64 SP1

      MB: GA-970A-DS3P

      CPU: AMD FX-8350

      RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4x4Gb

      GPU: Gigabyte R9 280X Windforce v2.0 with HDMI to Samsung S24D340HL

      PSU: Chieftec GPS-700A8, 700W

      SSD: Kingston HyperX Fury 120Gb

       

      Used drivers for MB and GPU from the disks. Installed and runs good, for a week. Yesterday found that there is newer version of AMD Crimson driver, got that and installed it.

      And now comes the sad part, after successful install comes 3 automated restart with no BSOD's or anything, and stops on check input cable or monitor just goes blank and its power led keeps blinking...

       

      I am able to get in safe mode, and if i uninstall video draiver, i can start up just good while using Standard VGA Display driver...

      BUT I get this now...

      And the lines are visible only it there is some blue colour...

       

      So, my question is, is something wrong with this GPU and I should RMA it, or this is some wierd driver malfunction POS?
