Default xfx 9600 gt xxx compatibility issues?

Hi, i recently upgraded to a xfx 9600 gt xxx graphics card and with it installed my PC keeps crashing.

I have a Winfast NF4SK8AA-8EKRS Motherboard With an AMD 3200 CPU and 2gb of RAM.

I am looking to upgrade these core components however I am not sure if the card is faulty or wether its just that its not compatible with my motherboard as when i reinstalled my old card which is a xfx 7600 gt xxx everthing works fine.

Please could somebody help me with this. Thanks.

Welcome to Tech-Forums!!!

It could be your power supply, not providing a sufficient amount of power. What is the wattage and amperage on the +12v rail of your PSU? Details are on the label of it.

hmm...That way more than enough power. Did you connect the PCIe power cable from the PSU to the graphic card? And how about drivers? Installed the latest?

And can you descbribe the crashings? Like when does it crash?

hmmm...It seems then, that the 9600GT is the one with the problem, since your older graphic card works fine. It should be compatible too. I don't see why it wouldn't.

Try reinstalling it. Uninstall the drivers first, using driver cleaner pro. Then take out the 7600, and put in the 9600GT, and then reinstall the latest drivers again. That's what I would of done.

Please don't double or triple post.
