Tryed installing VISTA but allmost every game i try crashes after a while ....
soo i thought VISTA is **** soo installed Windows XP 32 Bit
i have checked that nothing is overheating and all things are within normal temps
But even with Win Xp Games like Supreme Commander and Lineage crashes (Lineage wont even start)
My question is .... is my hardware compatible with each other ???
when i install my Chipset Drivers its says with BIG letters ATI southbridge installation ... and since i am using an 9800GX2 witch is a Dual Core graph card from Nvidia ... is it becouse i choose the wrong Motherboard for this card that my games keep crashing `???
Cant figure out what else to write .. but i hope someone out there have some help they could lend me
Still it's not good that they are very hard to find on the web, makes me think it's a re.branded no name unit, i'd buy a cheap ps unit tester and test it just to be sure, or use your multimeter if you have one.
It's a good place to start, even if it turns out that it's not the case, it's the most likely suspect until you eliminate it.
I have the same motherboard & psu also i have xfx nvidia 8800gt alpha dog xxx. but i was using ddr2 800 ram, xp pro, crysis auto detect high,cod4 highest settings,timeshift highest settings.i was having no problems at all, even when i overclocked to 3ghz, no heat problems nothing.Yesterday i bought corsair dominator pc2-8500 c5 i now cant get it to run past ddr2 800. my guess is the ram. hope this helps.
