I'm having problem playing most of my games lately. They crash to an ugly multicolor screen forcing me to restart my computer. Crash happens mostly in the first 30sec of playing. I checked my gpu temp witch were not any higher than usual at 78c in game 50 idle. I updated to the latest driver with no result.
My questions is, does the fact that GtaV witch is a heavy game run smoothly over long period of time prove that there is no problem with the graphic card or is it only luck?
What could cause this problem except the graphic card?
Spec : Windows Xp pro
3g pc-8500 ddr2 1066mhz
BFG GeForce gtx 280 oc
700w ocz powersupply
Edit: RMA the card and got a new one. Problem is gone. thx for your help
