What's faulty... My GPU or MOBO?
I bought a new computer back last June and it would crash quite often. It said something about the "display drivers crashed". At that point I figured it was a GPU problem but was too dumb to really do anything about it. Fast forward to today... I moved to a new city and had my computer shipped to me and upon turning it on, I was met with white lines all across the screen and it wouldn't boot to desktop. In safe mode, the white lines still appeared. I tried different drivers and that still did nothing. So, I tried the next option:
I installed the GPU into the other SLI slot and that worked (so far). The lines disappeared. I tried reinstalling the GPU into the original SLI slot and once again, the lines reappeared. So, is it safe to assume that my MOBO is faulty? It's an Asus P9X79 and the GPU is an MSI 560ti Twin Frozr. I don't have a second GPU to test the original SLI slot and there's no integrated GPU to test with either.
