Thanks.

Just now I got a phenomena that I haven't had before. When I launch the game now, I first get 17 FPS as always, but then it quickly toggles to 30 FPS for about one second or something, then back to 17 and once more up to 30, after that the entire screen freezes at 17 FPS and I have to shut down the game using windows task manager, what never happened before (unless I was overclocking). I had this behavior never before in my tests (and that were *many*), but now I can reproduce it over and over.

Any thoughts on that?

You've been fooled with this video card, it's simply a crap. I would ask my money back.
Seriously.

I'll leave it at that.

Please educate yourself.

insanelazarez, I can confirm that my 750W PSU is well enough for the 560Ti and that the mentioned issues are caused by other (i.e. mainly software) problems.

I might run into power issues when doing heavy OCing on my system, but upon "normal" usage 750W is sufficient and does not bottleneck anything.

What brought a serious improvement in my case was starting windows in safe mode, wiping any- and everything named "nvidia" out of the device manager, running driver fusion clean-up and erase the remains of any nvidia bit on my system, then restarting and installing the old driver for the GPU, with a clean installation and everything but the graphics driver unselected. Then, in nvidia control panel disable everything globally (not only on the STALKER program tab).

I reduced temps on my gtx580 by 20c [with no appreciable loss in visual quality] by switching everything off in Nvidia control panel. New enhancements on new drivers don't apply to Stalker and I think the card wastes energy trying to implement them. I also don't let new driver packages unzip to the default location. Have you tried re-flashing the bios yet, and is this on a clean Win 7 installation?
Don't give up, you'll get there - I always do.

Not yet since I'm pretty busy and already happy to have almost the initial framerate again. But I will do that later.

Disabling everything in NV CP was necessary in my case to get rid off the black-white artifacts on the foliage that I was having. I don't see any temps affects so far, though.

If I had that card I would RMA it and try another one.

Unfortunately RMAing is not an option in this case otherwise I'd already have done that for sure!

what?

Don't you have any other games to test this card on besides Stalker? Verify the card's functionality with them. If it fails on them too then you'll know.

Is the card still under Warranty?
