I'm really not sure all I know is that my GPU is running at 90 C while playing Rainbow Six Vegas right now and that worries me. I am alt tabbed out right now and it dropped down to 60 ... it doesn't make much sense. I wish I knew more people out here with the proper hardware to diagnose this because I have no spare parts or money to afford to test different options. I sprayed some compressed air the other day and cleaned out some of the dust but I haven't opened up the plastic thing to get to the PSU and whatever else is hiding in there.
If the PSU was the problem would it only crash during games though? I mean I can leave this thing on for a week straight just doing casual things but I can't play any games for more than an hour or two. Its really unusual that Quake 3 would be having the same effects as Vegas and Quake 4 though. I don't see how my PSU is drawing too much power from a game from 1999.
I appreciate all the suggestions and if anyone has any more solutions please help me out this is very frustrating. I ran memtest and it came out good also since I thought that might be a possible factor so its not the memory and my fans are all spinning.
I used to play games 16 hours straight w/ no crashes at all so this is very bizzare.
