Is there a VRAM tester for ATI Radeon HD video cards?

Something like memtest86? Just wondering. Thank you in advance. :)

OCCT gpu test shows errors in it's display when ran. That's what I use
it for, anyway!

AM2 Cooler

I was wondering if this Inno3D cooler would fit an older AM2 motherboard as
it only mentions AM2+ and AM3.

It also mentions '939', which I believe is in fact AM2. My opteron165

Replacement for 8800GT

?It's interesting that you mention the fan, because several times in the
last 6 months or so it's become noisy. A high pitched, almost 'whistling'
sound. Plainly sounded like it needed lubrication.

(sad) conclusion that the frequent crashes I'm getting are almost
certainly signs of a failing or buggy graphics card.

GTX 460 vs HD 5850 ?

roughly twice as fast as HD 3870. This makes me choice tougher for me,

GeForce 8800GT seems hot

My GeForce 8800GT seems very hot! The fan is working fine on it but it
still seems very hot.

Vacuum out the heatsink, it's full of dustbunnies.

GTX 470 Video card deal headsup

There is a probable reason why the 465 is a 465 and not a 470. Try
running Furmark 'Extreme Burning Mode" on a 465 BIOS-flashed to 470.

Sure. As I said before, this particular model 465 is...

Do you happen to have an AMD2+ motherboard with SB600 to see if X6

No, sorry. I skipped one or generations this upgrade cycle, coming from
a 939 socket dualcore opteron setup :)
