I am having problems running my 7600gt with these games
dugeonseige2, warcraft3, Oblivion, warhammer dawn of war.
but these games run fine:>Fear, Rfonline, neverwinternights, bauldersgate.
The problem is that i would run these games for 5-10 min then they would freeze for 1-3 minutes then run for 5 min then freeze up again for 1-3 minutes.I dont know what to do, i have the latest video drivers and directx 9. Need some help!!!!
CPU:amd a64 3200+ venice core
video card:evga 7600 gt 560/1400
harddrive:maxtor sata 100gb
ram:corsair value ram 1 gb stick pc3200 400mhz
I haven't play Oblivion yet; waiting for an official patch to improve performance and bugs. But I have read several posts that the GPU runs hotter in Oblivion than other games; around 5'C to 8'C hotter.
Like I said try underclocking because I think your real problem is due to overheating. Also play with you PC case open and see if you get the same problems.
I found out where my problem lies.
It is the video card. I took out my 7600 and turned my old intergrated graphics back on there is no freezing up at all.
Since it is my video card what should i do.
Call EVGA tech support and explain your problem. Did you check your temps? What are they? I still am thinking it's not your card but a system or software issue you have. That you can play some games no problem and not others sounds very much like a software issue to me.

I agree. An overheating issue doesn't make sense if FEAR runs fine but WC3 doesn't. If his computer is having heating issues in WC3 to the point that it freezes up, then it should catch fire when he plays FEAR.
It's possible that your hard drive has that "not so fresh" feeling and could benefit from starting over.
Are you sure? Because when I turn my intergrated graphics on then the problem is fine. But if i do that I have to deal with a slow intergrated graphics then. I rather would have the 7600gt running then that.
I was talking to the tech support for evga. They told me it wasnt a heating problem and that I should try 3dmark06 then call them back up.

I'm never sure until it's fixed.
It's just a very strange issue, really. I don't see why it would play some games that require more muscle and not play some that require less. I guess it couldn't hurt to remove all of your drivers (use drivercleaner and be sure to follow the instructions to the letter) and reinstall your drivers. After you're reinstalled, be sure to disable your integrated graphics (if you aren't already), as that can sometimes cause conflicts.
