Ok my mates after a gfx card, could someone give me the best card to go with his system,
OS = Windows XP Motherboard = GA-MA69VM-S2 CPU = AMD Athlon 5000 X2 Memory = OCZ PC2 6400 2x1gig PSU = COLORSit 600Watt
I had given my friend my old 8800 GTS 320mb but for reason unknown it wouldn't work, monitor wouldn't come on when I had it slotted in (made sure bios has PCI-E enabled) ,also I noticed when I powered up all the fans came on straight away, but the gfx one took a few seconds to fire? so eventually had to boot up using the onboard xpress 1200 which of course is pants..
More aboutsuggestions problem
what resolution do u game on......... below 1200x1024- go for 8800GT bellow 1600x1200- go for 4850 bellow 1920x1200- 4870 above 1920x1200- 4870x2
and as for the problem u mentioned, i thing its bcoz of a bad PSU......
Reso will be 1680x1050 Budget about £150
So perhaps a better PSU & the 8800gts might be fine, as wouldn't the 4850 etc suffer the same problems if it's the psu at fault?
