    Don't mean to sound like an idiot or anything but how do I get my memory dump?

    They should be in the following folder C:\Windows\Minindump . Make sure to right-click on the most recent one and select Sendto > Compressed Zip File and then upload that file to the other forum.

    Ahh, that. Sure, I'll do that when I get round to it.

    I'm kinda starting to think it's my psu, I got a bsod with my amd gpu's, even though I never had these random bsod's before I installed my gtx 780.

    Made a thread on the other forums here.

    It may very well have been the NVidia driver's were buggy. They put out a new one last night. Current is 332.21 .

    I'll try that out once I get around to it.

    Yeah, it would be nice and cheaper, if that old driver turned out to be the issue. Just make sure to use the Custom option and put a check next to Clean install or remove old drivers. I forget what they call it. It removes all the Nvidia stuff, though and installs all the new versions (PhysX, etc.).

    Honestly I can't see the new driver doing much, as I've tried a crap ton of drivers with no luck, but I'll try it out later anyway.
    I'm making slight progress on the other forums, but the cause to me still remains a mystery, usually I'm pretty good with stuff like this in general, but the issues I've had so far just confuse me (the random bsods, mainly).

    Yeah, very true. However, if you try it and the issue is still there, it'll help you getting the video card replaced. You've thus tried everything possible on your end. Just make sure you let their support know that and even give them a link to this thread as further proof.

    Yeah. It's looking like a hardware issue, the seller has no problem refunding me, I just have limited time to decide whether I'm keeping the card or not. I started getting random bsod's with my 6790 too, which lead to random drivers. I've done a short memtest on all my ram (3 sticks got 2 passes, 1 got 4 passes; all with 0 errors) and my motherboard and cpu are brand new therefore can't be a problem, I can't see it being my graphics card either as they've worked perfectly fine before.
