Ok I have just installed a new Asus mobo and a Asus 9600XT video card
I have a Celeron 2.2Ghz
768MB DDR RAM
and a 250Watt PS
Now before I installed the new mobo and video card this happened rarely, but now that I installed the new mobo and video card my games and pc act weird frequently, First my games freeze, lets say Im playing a racing game the screen just stops there,but the sounds keep going and I can hear things crashing, sometimes the car goes black and the screen freezes too. If Im playing other games the pc sometimes restarts.
Now I have narrowed the problems down alot
My memory is not fualty
I reinstalled my OS and updated the drivers
I ran a few scan disks
and my mobo and video card is brand new
Now that last 2 reasons causing this problem can be slow cpu or weak PS
Maybe now that I have a stronger video card and maybe stronger mobo that requires more power my PS is not enough?
Or maybe my Celeron is just not a powerful enough cpu for 3D games. Beacuase so far I have not encountered any problems while working on my pc or web browsing its just on games.
Well if anyone has any tips or sugestions please tell me, thanks
BTW Im going with a Pentium 4 if I get a new cpu please dont start telling me AMD is better becuase I dont feel like buying a new mobo
and my current mobo support HT and high cpu speeds.
