Dear ajr8,

Did you build your computer?

What power supply do you have?

The reason I ask is that I went through the same problem.

I had a bad power supply new! Antec sent me a new one.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:

i'm not trying to bash your choice of power supply..but u may really want to stick w/ a more reliable name brand supply like antec or even a good pc power and cooling supply. you may be trying to run your games at settings that the vid card simply cant support. you may want to crank back a few detail settings and maybe even reduce the sound quality a little to see if it helps things at all. i would really check into a better power supply though...cheap power supplys that have a high rating output almost never run as advertised..just my 2 cents though..good luck
