So here is my issue. I have new build which works just fine until I load any game which has 3d graphics. Once the game loads I get a stream of artifacts going across the screen in small amounts and then the video crashes to a black screen. At that point, I have to exit the game (Alt-F4) even though its still running and windows comes up no problem. At one point the system said the drivers failed on the system. I have a new install of windows 10 and updated the OS, I have tried old drivers and the new 16.11.5 each one has the same effect. Graphics look good on benchmark and in-game but then artifacts and crash....So I don't know where to go from here and any help would be great.
CPU - i5 6600
MB - Asus H170 Pro Gaming (updated Bios)
SSD - EVO 850 500gb
RAM - G.Skill 2400 (2) 8gb
PSU - EVGA 600B (600Watts)
GPU - XFX Black Edition 8gb rx480
My first thought is bad gpu. RMA it.
My second thought is, to save possible embarrassment, and try it in a buddies computer before you attempt the RMA.
