Alright, I need some suggestions.
I've recently upgraded my mobo to an ASUS A8V Deluxe, and Processor to an Athlon 64 3000+. I've had a Radeon 9800 PRO for awhile and the older system ran games without any problems until now. Additional relevant specs:
450W PSU (just upgraded)
512 Megs PC2700 DDR (old, I know, but hasn't given me any problems yet)
Windows XP Home
Now when I start up Sims 2, Rome TW, or 3DMark05, the games freeze after a few minutes and the system resets after a few seconds. It's basically the same behaviour with everything I've tested, but normal windows stuff (internet, bittorrent, email) runs great for hours. Dxdiag says everything is AOK. The power supply is way more than adequate according to PSU calculators. Like I said, the video card has worked great in the past.
SO!?! Anything I'm forgetting here? What's the problem?
