okay this sucks because i really want to play doom 3 and half life 2 is almost here...

around last x-mas i bought myself the radeon 9800 256 graphic card and installed it.. everything worked great.. perfect.. the graphics look outstanding on my syncmaster 213t lcd digital monitor... than one day it started pooping out on me... it started freezing up and everything... so i figured i really fucked something up... i really didn't knowwhat it was at first... i sure didn't think it was my card... anyways, i got so sick of my computer freezing that i decided to save whatever i needed and reinstall the whole damn system (this is after i tried figuring out what was doing it)... and than i installed the video drivers again.. and sure enough... it stated freezing again... to make sure for sure that the v-card was the problem i reinstalled everything one last time... everything i need is running perfect.. so i found the core of the problem.. guess what it is? you got it... the v-card...

now i went through all the support info ati gave me for the problem, but still no solution...

if anyone can help me get this thing working i will in return help ya with what i know best... graphic arts.. a logo anything ya need... here are some screen shots of what this machine is made out of...

Well its either power or cooling.

What is the size of your PSU? If its at 400W and is a nice brand then you shouldnt be worrying.

If its cooling then you need to either buy a nicer fan for it and get some nice thermal gel.

I recommend Artic Silver 5 for thermal paste. It works the best. You can also get a better video card cooler. Check out thermaltake they seem to have a nice but expensive one.
