Ok so i brought a new nvidia 7600gt graphic card for my dell dimension 5000. I've disabled the onboard graphios and fitted the new card. Everything was great for the first two weeks. I have also fitted a ocz modstream 450w power supply as the original unit had a 305w one.

Any way my problem is this, the core temp for the graphics card was about 60-63c, so i installed a pci fan under neither and this has brought the temp down to about 50-55c. All has been well till yesterday while playing day of defeat(not source) i seem to be stuttering or freezing for a couple off seconds then the game carries on then a couple of seconds later it freezes again. Also when i crouch the screen seems to jump but when i go prone there is nothing but i still get the freeze while trying to move.

Anyone have any ideas they might be able to shed some light on this? :thumbsup:

You may have the resolution or refresh rate at a setting that your monitor is not capable of doing, you may not have enough RAM, or your card may be overheating when stressed.

How much ram, what size processor?
Check the other things mentioned above.

I thought about the heat but when i'm playing i've checked the temp from the card and its still the same not much change.

I've got 1024 ram and a 2.8 intel pentuim 4 cpu. I also thought about the resolution and have tried it on 60 and 75 hertz (top and bottom settings) and still the same problem. Its strange that i was ok for the last two weeks and now this. Could the card be faulty???
