i have 8800 gt 512 mb card
till last month the card worked fine could play anything and the temperatures were used to be near 80-85 deg cel range...
from last week whenever i play any game like doom 3 (in ultra setting 1152x864) or medal of honour arbourne or rainbow six vegas the monitor turns off after some time of gameplay.....
i checked the temerature which was same as before 80-85 range ....
this didnt use to happen earlier while playing any game ....
is the card gone????
my sys specs are
intel p 4 3 gig processor
intel 915 gav mb
2 gb ram
400 w power supply
160 gig hdd
Well correct me if I'm wrong but here is what I see.
You have a computer that is about 4~5 years old. You upgraded the video card. Now your video card cuts out after playing for a bit?
Your power supply is just too old, from the 400w starting max load and factor in capacitor aging and the amount of hours on it... i would say that there is a high likely hood of your power supply just not being able to supply the power necessary.
