if you have problems actually installing games the dvd drive is more likely to be the problem. I would try the card in a friends pc if possible, there are faulty cards but I would bet that its ok.

i have tried the card in another pc and it works fine just trying to figure out if there's any compatibility isues before i send it back to mesh
