Test a used Geforce GTX 295?

4 posts in this topic

I bought a Geforce GTX 295 from someone in my town.

 

Before I bought it, I already have it ran Heaven Benchmark for an hour on his computer.

 

Anyway, he is giving me a week to return it if anything goes wrong.

 

Is there anything else I need to test?

 

The Antec Nine Hundred should give the video card an adequate airflow.

 

 

Here's the rest of the specs of the computer:

AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.20 Ghz

Asus M4N82 Deluxe

4GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)   4 x G.SKILL F2-6400CL5-1GBNQ

Corsair TX650W

160GB 7200RPM Western Digital WD Blue WD1600AAJS

Try Unigine Valley. I've noticed it eats more VRAM than Heaven.

 

And then there's the classics:

* 3DMark - Basic Edition is Free and also on Steam, if you like so

* Furmark - just ensure that both GPUs are working (run fullscreen), but don't let temperatures go over 95 degrees - immediately kill it, if they do.

 

You may try running PRIME95 In-place large FFTs *simultaneously* to see if your PSU can handle with the load. TX650W should be ok, but many things should and suddenly they're not - doubt everything.

I second Furmark. But just keep an eye on the temps. If i remember rightly, those 295s are a mini furnace!

The card ran 3D Mark Basic Edition without a problem.

As for furmark, the temperature hits 90C after 15+ minutes. I chickened out after that.

 

I haven't run Unigine Valley yet.
