Ok, I admit it I've got a soft spot for older games. Recently I got a Radeon 9800 Pro because I happen to like new games too and my old GeForce 4 wasn't doing the job anymore. Anyway, last night I loaded up Thief: The Dark Project and a couple of other older games and I ran into a problem. Thief keeps causing my system to freeze. The graphics freeze but the sound continues. I've had similar problems on my old GeForce card because the card didn't like my old mobo. Any ideas what this problem is? I think it's either a video or sound card problem but I've got the most current Catalyst Drivers and Audigy 2 drivers. My system specs are.
Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro
Audigy 2 ZS Platinum
2 Raptor 36gb (Raid 0)
I don't own a 9800 Pro and don't play old games right now.

Just incase anybody looks up this thread to deal with the same problems I found that If I turn off hyperthreading in the BIOS the game plays fine and never locks up. Apparently the older game doesn't like Hyperthreading for some reason. So there you are.
