Default I have a problem with the x800gt.


I have a problem with the x800gt.

Every time I play a game it eventually freezes or crashes and goes back to desktop. I’ve tries many thing to remedy the situation. I’ve updated the drivers, lowered the resolution (crashes after 20 minutes, instead of 5 minutes), removing the card and using the integrated graphics and installed cooling systems.

Today I’m going to buy one of the nvidia 6600 boards. Ill post on what happens, later today.
