the games crash frequently, windows hangs,crash dumps. But when i disconnect the gpu and use the OB graphics these problems do not appear.
Ill mention my pc specs

MOBO Asus M2N68-Am plus
Kingston 2gb ddr2 ram
GPU Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT 512 mb ram
PSU iball LPE 223-400 ( i think it is 250 w but m not sure and i think the psu is not good enuf)
Screen resolution 1600x900
do i need to change my gpu is it fried???
do i need to change my psu???
And what is this wire/connector coming out from the back of my gpu what is it used for...
Well the GPU is quite old by now and could be dieing as for your PSU that GPU if I remember correctly (have not used Nvidia in a very long time) did not need PCI-E power connector. From what I could see it needs a 400wat PSU which seems a bit high maybe some one else can give you some more info. Does your case allow for a standard ATX PSU?
hey, thanks for the reply...
Yah m planning to get a new gpu. But what if the problem is with the psu and the new gpu also behaves as the one i have right now.
So do you think it is better to buy a new psu first and then later take a new gpu...
As one of my friends told me that my psu is not good enough.
@bryonhowley- i guess my case has a standard ATX psu size
This is a great PSU, it cost $109.99, but with the $20 rebate, the final cost is $89.99. This PSU is worth the upgrade and will provide plenty of power even if you decide to buy powerful GPUs like the GTX 670 for example and SLI those cards. It has 750W and the PCI-E power connectors (4 connectors total, 2 needed on each high end card) for SLI/CF cards such as the GTX 670.
