    So I have posted a lot on having the white dots/line issues in some games on certain textures. More recently I posted on having the "Drivers have stopped working and recovered issues"; I solved the latter because my graphic card exploded, and when I put my other 6870 in it stopped.

    However, I still get the white dots/lines in certain textures and I have done the following to try and solve it:

    Rollback/update drivers
    Reformat HDD
    Memtest - passed 11 hours
    Prime95 - passed 9 hours
    Two 6870's - same issue with pixels (one recnetly exploded - driver issue [new one too wtf])

    and some other random things.

    SO........It is either a few things and would like your insight:
    1: Bad mobo?
    2: Bad PSU (Doubting but can be?)
    3. HDD ( again doubting)
    4. Games hate amd drivers?

    Thanks in advance for any insight into my problem. Now I must go yell at newegg for my new card exploding on me.

    The fact your gpu "exploded" I wonder if it somehow damaged your pcie slot?

    Did you try installing your gpu in a different pcie slot to see if that works?

    I can try tomorrow, but I am using the same pci slot for the other card w/o the driver error yet. Though will try for pixels I guess. Ty in advance.

    Also for clarification, I had the white pixels on the pci-slot for the old card before the new one exploded in it. So existing issue which leads me to think motherboard maybe, though I don't know if a motherboard would do that.

    To rule out motherboard you can try your card in another PC. Did you have your cards overclocked?
