Windows 7: program to stress test a video card?

14 Mar 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

recording stuff just records whats on screen, so it will record any tearing or artifacts regardless of it being a gpu fault. and will show up on any playback device.

And splitting it too much like you have will ruin it.

I had some pix-elation problems on my Sony like 3 years ago so I ran all new RG-6 cable throughout the house. Not 1 problem since.

Admittedly I'm no GPU guru, but it seems to be a better test would be using a perfect file. You may have bad playback over the recorded defects and not see it at all.

I have left the tv on and watched it all day during the day and it has been perfect.
So making that distribution amp change helped a lot.:)

So I think now that the hardware is fully ok.

This PC even though older tech just works fine for what I need it for.
All it needed to do was
1. watch OTA broadcasts
2. playback recorded 1080p video
3. watch online 1080p video without glitches
4. be able to work well over the gigabit lan, I use a very powerful PC as a data storage recorder for the TV. WMC lets you connect to other WMC PC linking the data storage. I found I can watch and record TV as it writes 1080p down onto the other PC in the living room. That way I can have an IDE 80gb HD and not need a lot of space.

I imagine it can watch blueray, but dont have a player in the PC.

I have 2 HTPC now. The first I built I went way overboard, quad cores, GTX260 video card, etc...

This other one most would consider way under-built. 3.2 ghz Pentium 4, 478mb, 2gb ddr400 ram, etc...
I was able to do this cheaply on used parts from eBay and a basic PC thrown away picked up off the street.

I have a free PCI slot left. I can buy a sound card to output 5.1 dolby by way of minijacks.
I assume WMC can do that?

My onboard sound is stereo mini jack out , but does have an spdif connector. But then I would need a dolby digital reciever.
