My 3 year old beloved grapchics card probably dies on me slowly.
Started with a driver update (from 16.12.2 to the latest one), after which i got multiple gray screens of death. (like this one FAIL-1.jpg Photo by pogostickio | Photobucket )
My thought of course were that the driver is the culprit so I rolled back to 16.12.2 with a clean install, with no avail. Also i started getting blue screens with the gsods, stating thread stuck in device driver and alikes.
The next tip was to lower the core and memory clocks, which I did and now it (kinda) works, with my memory set at 400MHz and the core at 500, althrough now i can play World of tanks at medium settings, with exra effects (foliage, shadows, extra effects etc) off for a match or two and graphical glitches start to appear (pinkish, yellow, green anomalies)

Graphically less demanding games seem to function like League and Crusader kings 2.


I'd be happy with any idea for a fix, or just a direction who else to bother with my problems.
