I bought this new graphics card Ati raedon HD 6850 1 GB .And after a month my pc started giving me trouble. The monitor goes completely blank after playing games for 5-10 mins.I still can hear the sound for sometime when screen goes blank.
This does not happens with my old graphics card Nvidia 8500GT even if I play for days.
So, I tested this new graphics card on my friend's pc it is working perfectly (he's still using it).
The problem occurs with only high graphics games like far cry 3 and black ops not with Warcraft III or aoe II.
I tried cleaning the cpu cabinet with compressed air and it did not helped at all.

My system configuration :-
Intel Pentium Dual CPU
E2180 @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz
4GB of ram (3.25 usable)
ATI Raedon HD 6850 1GB
450W psu

Yes its the PSU that came with the cabinet.
UMAX 450W psu . It didn't had any model no. written on the psu.It also dont have 6 pin power connecter, I have to use 4 to 6 converter pin power cable to supply power to graphics card.

okay, dont do that ever again. that PSU wont even deliver 450 watts. wait for your new psu and test the card again.

Replacing the PSU not only solved the problem but also improved system performance a bit.Playing for 3 days now no problem at all! Thank you all very much for your help.
