Hi everyone this is my first post, unfortunately about a problem.

Recently I starded to use an old PC (WinXP, 2600 Athlon).

The issue:
If and only if I start using something graphic intensive for example
play a flash video fullscreen or start a game, after 10-60 minutes the
screen first freezes and then the computer tuns of immediately.
(if I just surf the net or use word the pc runs fine)

I checked my harddisk with chkdisk and it seems fine. From my pov
it could be either the PSU or the graphics card but how can I find out?
I don't want to buy anything just out of suspicion.

Graphics card: Geforce MX 5200
PSU: Enermax ATX 12V Ver 353W
What I've tried: Reinstall nvidia drivers and directx 9.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I don't know much about video cards, but your power supply is kinda small. If your card pulls a lot of power it can cause problems. HERE is a link to a guide of power supplies. About 2/3 of the way down is a chart to help you figure out what size power supplly you need. Check it out, maybe your PSU is too small.. :thumbsup:
