4870 Crashing during gameplay.

Hello all I have a quick question. Whenever I play a game like BF:BC2 or Arma II I can play for like 10-20 mins and it will freeze up on me. I have a gigabyte hd4870 Card, and I am running an amd phenom x2 940 BE my power supply is also a 550 watt. Do you guys have any Ideas on what the problem could be?

Thank you for your time

  1. Check you temperatuers using HWmonitor.
  2. already checked that and it's not temperature related. Just for giggles I went ahead and ran the fan at 100 percent while playing and it still crashed. This is very frustrating, I don't know what else would be causing it to crash like this...
  3. I was getting crashes and bsods left and right while playing BFBC2. Might not be your hardware, as i never get them otherwise.
