    Strange. Isn't Zotac supposed to be a reputable brand? I always read good things about their products. Looks like no one gets it right all the time.

    Zotac. To be precise, it is a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 460 1GB AMP!

    Thought I'd just give an update.

    Ah right, I recall I had a 7300 LE and a 7300 GO too, and no problems whatsoever.
    Only with the 460.

    What motherboard and chipset are you using? Are you having trouble in windows? If you're not having trouble in windows, it's possible that there's a chipset/driverbug in the linux nvidia drivers that's not in the windows driver (I've seen this with fglrx and while fglrx isn't nearly as good as its windows counterpart, it does share a lot of code with the windows version like the nvidia drivers do).
    Well yeah, I've had GeForce all the time too, Riva TNT 2 Ultra, GeForce FX 5600, GeForce 9650GT Mobile, and now GTX 460.
    All cards except for the 460 always worked without any issues, and it seems many others have those problems too judging from various forums.

    My chipset is Intel H55, using an ASUS P7H55 motherboard.
    I don't have Windows installed, so I haven't been able to test.
    However, as I mentioned, my freezes seems to be partly gone now, so I don't really plan on troubleshooting the issue further.

    I think you're just having bad luck

    I don't know if it helps, but I've been having problems with my GTX 460 ever since I bought it.
    Random X freezes with the various famous NVRM codes in dmesg, resulting in having to force reboot the computer and pulling the power to have the card reset.

    I've monitored voltage levels from the PSU, ran memtest, tried various stressing tools, but nothing can give any hint of an error.
    Also tried setting memory voltages and timings manually, and changing various other settings in BIOS according to several posts all over the internet from people with the same kind of issues.
    Nothing helped.

    Right now it's working fairly well, and these are the two steps I took to get there:
    • Forced the powermizer mode to maximum
    • Upgraded my BIOS version, which included a fix for ASUS MemOK!


    I do still have occasional freezes, but they are very rare, and I think it's been at least a month since the last time now.
    Hopefully those steps helps for you too.

    My theory is that the NVidia hardware is simply bad, judging from all the problems they've been having with the laptop cards, etc.
    My next card will be an ATi for sure.
