Hi There Guys. I bought a new card and PSU back in June, and have been having a couple problems since.

Every time I try to do anything graphically intensive, the game will cut to black popping me back to the desktop with an Error Balloon reading DirectX Stopped Responding. Obviously this isn't ideal, or normal. When monitoring the Card, it seems to cut out when it hits 100% Usage.

It most frequently happens on Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition.

I am currently running....
CPU: Intel Pentium D (2 Core's) at 2.7GHZ
Memory: 3GB RAM (Don't remember the Make and Model)
DirectX Version: 11
GPU: PNY GeForce 550 Ti XLR8 Edition (Factory Overclock)
PSU: Thermaltake 430W PSU (TR2)

Thanks,
EGJason

Using the latest video card drivers from http://www.nvidia.com and using the latest DirectX Run Time from Microsoft?

Please update to Windows 7 SP1, and I notice that you are using an outdated version of Firefox 4.0, because as of now that is considered old. I would recommend upgrading to the latest version of Firefox. I also notice that you do not have an active Virus scanner, this could potentially be a cause for infection that can be causing these issues. Updates to computers are very vital, and that includes all application patches and upgrades and drivers.

Of Note, I do have MalwareBytes(Pro) installed. I'll be sure to update to SP1 and the Most Recent Version of FF.

EDIT: Checked Firefox, it's currently v7.0. xD

Thanks,
EGJason

Malwarebytes is not anti-virus it is anti-malware / spyware.

I would recommend getting Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials, or other free ones.

Perform all the updates, and let it run for a good 48 hours and post back if you have any more issues.

Yeah. So, that didn't fix anything...

Could it be that I have an insufficient amount of power or something?

Your video card requires a 400 watt or better with a combined 12v rail of 24 amps. You have barely 29 on the 12v and that all has to get used by other components.

^ Yep, you might want to change your PSU to a 500W + PSU, with a lot more Amps on the +12v rail and some extra headroom.

Take your pick.

Remember, Nvidia recommends 400Watts as the bare minimum for this card. You also need to consider the rest of your system specs. and capacitor aging (if you intend to use it for long).

Okay. I'll be sure to take a look at those. My CPU could use an upgrade anyway.

Thanks Guys!

P.S. - 3 12V Rails = 36 Amps?
