Default system crash!

Please help me with this problem. I have a system that crashes anytime my video card (eVGA eGeForce 6200) runs a 3D intensive program. Windows loads fine but when DirectX 9 or 3D program runs, it crashes. Could this be from a crappy power supply, bad memory, a weak CPU, a weak mobo chipset, or is it most likely from a bad video card. Please help!!

Its probably more related to a bad power supply, currupt drivers, or bad, dieing or overheating card.

It's more than likely corrupt DirectX drivers. Try reinstalling the newest version and reinstall/update your video card drivers.
