Default PC locks up

Hi there guys

I just installed the 6600 GT a few days ago. For some reason during gameply my PC will just freeze and I will have to reboot by pressing the reset button. I am using XP SP2. IF anyone can think of anything please post here.

your 6600gt is pci-e or agp? if agp did you connect the power cable to it? if not then better do so it have a major impact on its stability , also could be the psu. download prime95 & everest
run prime95 & everest (goto computer-->sensor) then start the stress testing in prime95 and while its doing it goto the everest window wait for 10-15mins and write down on paper the lowest the +3.3v/+5v/+12v gets then stop the stress testing in prime95 and close it & everest and report back with the voltages
