    Does not seem worth the hassle for the amount of improvement.

    +60 FPS seems like a noteworthy bump IMO.

    On Max frame comparison. Avg FPS comparison only about 10 FPS, not too worthy.

    You always pay a lot more for just a little extra gravy at the top.

    It's also worth pointing out that was before I had underclocked the graphics card so it was experiencing pretty serious throttling. I also have only just received my 330w charger too so have been reluctant to push it until now which the reason for the lack of updates. Unfortuantely my new charger appears to be broken, when I ran a benchmark using it my laptop powered off and it stopped charging, it then wouldn't turn back on until I unplugged the charger. After an hour of waiting it did work again but the same issue reoccurs if the machine is run to maximum for a couple of minutes again, I assume I should send it back for replacement?

    So I finally got a coursework deadline out of the way so I could take a look at some of the issues I've been having over the past couple of weeks. I switched the new 330w charger back to my 230w charger and that fixed the turning off issue. However, I'm now instead getting a very strange display issue after a couple of minutes of benchmarking, I've attached pictures of what the screen shows. The only way to recover the laptop at this point is to hard reset it.

    I've already tried updating the drivers, removing any overclocks, removing underclock, reducing underclock and no matter what I do the issue still occurs. I really hope it's not another dodgy graphics card, has anyone got any ideas of what it could be?

    What the screen shows:

    I've also had a wider variety of error logs shown in event viewer, interestingly enough the last crash didn't have any but the one before produced this:
    If anyone has any suggestions they'd be muched appreciated.

    That's generally the sign of a failing GPU.

    Sadly that looks like a dodgy graphics card. The Event Viewer error is a graphics driver crash. Have you removed the heatsink and ensured there's good coverage of thermal paste on the GPU die and thermal pads on the various PCB components?

    My guess would be bad video memory, sadly. Definitely GPU failure in some variation if not that, specifically.
