You have to isolate the problem and the way you're providing answers is kind of confusing and it won't allow us to rule out "possible causes" for your problem, you know what I mean? Post back with current situation,ok?
After I unplugged the DVD power connector, it didn't freeze for about 30 minutes, and I thought I had isolated the problem. It froze right after I bragged to a friend I fixed the problem.
As for the video card, it's been 20 hours without a single freeze. I was browsing the eVGA website looking for RMA service when I found this thread
. This made me feel better. Also talking with my other friend about his video card, he mentioned his was a 7900GS as well, having the same symptoms. He took it out, and his is rock solid.
Before I went to my buddy's house for diagnostics, I got one last freeze. Instead of everything stopping, it displayed lines of color across the screen, leading me to believe it was the video card.
Should I wait another day before I RMA my Video Card to make sure it won't freeze still?
