Video Card Stress Test with Furmark

Video Card Stress Test with Furmark: If you having display problems and your trying to determine if its a graphics card issue, you can stress test that card with software called Furmark. When you install the software be very careful of the settings you use to burn test your graphics card. The settings I am using are pretty standard for most cards, just keep a eye out for them temperatures and any Visual Artifacts getting displayed on the screen. You will need to check the temperature for your graphics card so you know what maximum temperature you need to set it to in Furmark. So once the test is running, look for visual artifacts, flickering, tearing, strange colours, crashing, BSOD,  weird flickering or any other strange happenings.
