Re: GTX 660 OEM TESTING RESULTS (X51)

Hi, I just received my X51 a couple days ago. Plugged it into my TV via HDMI and had a lot of feedback like noise and the GTX660 shutdown. I then tried it on my dual monitor setup at my desk and i got the same thing. I threw D3 in and had moments when i dropped into the signal digit FPS. My old rig had a GTX8800  in and it preformed better. Anyone have any suggestions here?

Thanks,
