Need help decideing what the problem most likely is and what is best
ok i have a 9850 phenom b3 stepping 95 watt verison for a few months i thought it would be fine with my motherboard which supports a diffrent verison of the 9850 phenom my question is does the stepping of it make that much of a differnce im able to play most games but what happens in a hour in or so sometimes mintues in it will crash and my dual core 2.6 works fine.. is it for sure the motherboard since its not compat with this verison of the cpu and should i get a new motherboard and hope it was that or get a phenom 920 that i know works with this board
New motherboard that supports it and some alot of better around 50-60 dollars phenom 920:99 dollars

Welcome it could be temp related have you monitored them? Post all your specs inclusive of PSU and CPU cooler.
have a 650watt ultra power supply i know its not tempature related as it can crash within a mintue and sometimes a hour the tempature of cpu would be at 40 when it crashes then sometimes its 44 50 or just straight up when i start the game
My video card is a good temps And the motherboard im useing is a evga 730a
