I have a xfx 4870 DDR5 graphic card and recently it has been giving me a lot of problems. for instance whenever i try to play a big game like crysis2 or dirt3 it hangs the system as soon as the actual game begins. my other system specs are:
Core 2 duo E8200
4Gb DDR2
Win7/Vista 32 bit
Asus P5QLD Pro

Ps recently I gave my motherboard on warranty cz it stopped dead. I have gotten a replaced one or maybe it could be the same. still please tell me how to figure out whats wrong...

for crysis 2,
go to crysis directory; electronicarts/crytek/cysis2/engine. Then move the 'videos.pak' file elsewhere. This should solving ur problem because ur an amd graphic users. Not sure for the dirt3 though. hope it helps.
