Basically, I got my new custom built system last Friday, and I have been messing with it ever since. The retail I bought from has Tech Support voicemail because they are that busy I am assuming.
Running Windows Vista 64-bit, nvidia geforce gtx295 dual video card, 800w PSU, liquid cooling with 2 fans as well.
Basically, when I booted up my computer, it worked for about 15-20 minutes then started freezing and me having to turn the pc off manually. Eventually after many hours of frustration.. I disabled the video card and I was able to surf the web and do other things without it crashing. However I cannot play some games as it says "Failed to find suitable display device. Exiting Program." I have updated the GeForce GTX295 drivers, and tried about everything else I can think of just short of actually getting on a game for about 3-5 minutes before the computer froze again. My only thought would be the PSU is not holding up to my video card, however I'm sure its compatible.
I have also tried reinstalling Windows Vista, but now I do not feel that Vista is the problem.
If you need me to post anything else, please let me know. I'll only be able to check this 1-2 daily, however.
