i recently upgraded a dell dimension c521 Vista 32-bit from a amd athlon 3200+, 280 standard psu and integrated Nvidia 6150LE to
Amd Athlon 64 X2 5800+
Ati radeon hd 5570
600w PSU

i changed the bios to 1.0.3 because i was told it works better with dual cores

it runs but it will randomly freeze after 3-4 hours and the screen turns black and the fan sounds like its at 100%.

i have no clue where the problem lies
