I've played skyrim a good bit now. But, a problem has come up recently where during an intense part of the gameplay (fighting alduin to be exact) When the game will freeze, and go to a Grey or red screen with vertical lines. And this card is great usually. I get fluent gameplay with crysis and Battlefield 3. I dont get it, do i need a driver? or is it a hardware problem? Its very frustrating because i have to do a hard restart every time. Once it happens i can still hear the audio in the background though. I need some help. And if my card is faulty i was thinking about upgrading to a 150-200$ card. But im not sure. the card stays around 40c while gaming in skyrim.

Heres my specs:

NZXT M59 Case with side fan to back fan airflow.
450w Xtreme PSU
Visiontek HD 4670 card
4gig ram
AMD Phenom quad core 2.40ghz
1tb HDD

(built for $390) :sol:

It sounds like artifacting. If you can rma it to the manufacturer do that. However, an upgrade to a 5770 or 6850/70 would be better.

Would my 450w handle the 5770 or 6850?
