Hey guys, i am having a problem with what seems to be what I think is a driver problem, but i could be wrong. My woes begun awhile ago on my custom build computer playing certain games with the sound on. It would freeze for about 7-10 minutes, then go back to it's normal state, playable until a unknown duration thereafter until it did it again. I started getting this problem about a year ago, when i had vista. I recently got the windows 7 64 bit RC version and put that on. Im using a 9800 gtx + for my gpu, and a sb x-fi sound card. I have ran every test under the sun, stability tests, (nothing is OCd), anti-virus, spyware, registry, memtest, prime95, hard drive tests, and iv'e done the ritualistic task of checking all of my drivers frequently. As far as cooling goes, speedfan indicates that everything is running fine, and ventilation is no problem for my case. Any ideas would be appreciated :)
