So I recently bought a new computer:
Intel Xeon E3-1230 v3 Boxed
Sapphire R9 280x Tri-X
8GB Crucial Ballistix sport 1600MHz CL9
be quiet! Straight Power E9 450W
Samsung SSD 840 Evo Series 120GB
Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2TB
Corsair Carbide Series 330R
This parts were suggested to me on another forum.
Everything is working fine - except the graphics card. When I play games I get artifacts, polygonbugs, and sometimes the textures seem to not load properly (tested in Tomb Raider, Guild Wars 2, League of Legends, Just Cause 2, Dota 2).
So I started googling a bit and found out that it seems to be a quite common problem with those GPUs. I already tried different drivers, lowering the GPU and Memory clock, re-installing Win7 - I contacted Sapphire support and they said that my PSU provides too low energy. I asked in the forum where they suggested me the setup and they meant it should be ok. So my first question is, if you think that the power of the PSU is enough?
I also tested my VRam using Video Memory Stresstest, since I saw a lot of people saying that those problems can be caused due to a defect VRam:
Changing video mode to 640x480x16...OK

I hope you can help me with this
