I've recently installed a new PSU: Stealth Stream 2 700w.
It seemed to be working fine without any issues so I went ahead and installed a new graphics card: Geforece GTX 460 SE
My system specs are: Vista 32 bit. 4gb ram. Processor AMD dual core 4450e 2.30ghz.
Installation seemed to go fine and the graphics card appears to be in and working properly according to device manager.
However, when I try and load RIFT (which worked fine with my old graphics card on the very lowest graphics setting) the game plays ok on its lowest setting but the second I try and ramp up the graphics the screen goes black. It used to restart but I've unchecked that option so I could see what was happening, and it literally goes black and locks.
Temperature climbs fairly rapidly when I've asked for higher graphics settings, climbed to 89 very quickly - it's difficult to catch it before it all goes black and freezes on me.
Would high temp cause it to do this?
