All I wanted to do was build a new pc that would be fairly quiet, and fairly fast. So I bought the parts and built it, but the display cuts in and out. This morning it worked for about 2 hours perfectly, but then the display starts cutting in and out. At first I thought that it might be that something was overheating, but I was able to read the CPU temp (33 - 36 C) and the GPU temp (38 - 51 C) and they seemed to stabilize at CPU 33C and GPU 41C. I have tried switching video cards, both cards are similar and both show the cutting in and out. I did install an extra 120mm fan blowing directly on the video card. I basicly don't know what to do next. Here's a list of components:
Motherboard: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 CPU: Intel i7 - 920 Bloomfield 2.66 Ghz RAM: Corsair Dominator 66b DDR3 1600 CASE: Antec P183 with 4 nexus 120mm fans and noise dampening case insulation Power Supply: Nexus RX-6300 630 watt CPU cooler: Zalman CNPS10X quiet 120mm Windows 7 Professional
Video Cards: Installed now: EVGA GeForce 9800 GT 16B 256 bit GDDR3
Also tried: Gigabyte GV-N98TSL-1GL Silent Cell 9800 GT
Please someone take pity on me and help. I'm about ready to put it out on the driveway and run over it. drb46 is offline

Don't run it over, ship it to me.
(But remove that piece of crap card first)
Did you try a different graphics driver? How about another monitor?
