To be completely honest, I'm not a computer parts wizard, but I've got a 600 watt PSU, not sure of the amps on the 12v, but I'm fairly sure it should support it, yet whenever I play a game my monitor stops receiving data and goes into power saving mode, and my audio starts repeating itself. Is this the video card over heating, a problem with my PSU, or something else? If it is caused by over heating, is there a easy way to fix it or would I need to get the card repaired? Thanks in advance
Sorry for the late response, been a little busy. I got the computer from a friend, but I've been running the system with an 8500 GT in it and it hasn't had any problems, so I'm fairly sure that the 9600 is the problem, and not the motherboard/ram.
