ok so ive had my graphics card for a little over a year now ive been overclocking for more than 6 months it has been stable. i recently updated everything for my graphics card and asus motherboard . the motherboard is not the problome. i am runing 2 monitors extended out of my asus eah4350 one dvi, one vga. today i decided to overclock a little higher due to a new game. about three minutes after i applied these changes i got small red squares in a checkered pattern on both screens then my computer shut off. when i log on and try to do anything i get the red squares again and computer shuts off. any way to fix easily without upgrading? i have a M4A785-M motherboard, Intel phenom II processor clocked to 3.03ghz, 4 gigs ddr.

Are these squares there when the computer POSTs? If so, the video ram is toast.

As a side note, there is no Intel Phenom II processor. AMD makes Phenoms.

Probably the easiest way to determine whether it's completely toast is try it in another machine. Normally if it's broken the pattern will show up at POST. Seeing as it starts when the driver loads there might be something software related that's causing this, like an OC that won't go away.
MarsII?? Bah, I want a 7970. :)

Ah geez.. it's performance is below my old 5870 plus I can do eyefinity with just the one card.
I can't find any info about the power plugs either. Weird.

Before you talk raid, you need to determine what you have for a powersupply.
If you intend to upgrade from the 4650 (a HTPC card) to a gaming card then you're going to need a decent PSU.
 I'm betting your computer has a measly 300watt no name brand and any decent gaming GPU needs 450-500 watts from a GOOD PSU like Antec, Corsair, Seasonic.
