Specs:

AMD 3200+

2gb corsair ram

6600 navida pci-e gfx card

1 exust fan

1 side fan

1 top fan

and a fan on the cpu and gfx card

I sent you the PM back, but in case other people are wondering, your card probably is over heating. You can either add more fans to your case, or buy a better heatsink for it. I use this one on my 6600gt and it works great

Well, you can check the GPU temp with the new nVidia control panel. Just download the latest drivers and get out of the games after 10 mins and check the temperature, if it's more than 80` C, then you might be having problems with it.

All fixed now i reinstalled windows and updated the drivers i think i downloaded bad drivers thanks for your help anyway one thing though in 3dmark 06 my score with the cpu at 2500mhz i get 1752 the graphics card is at 550/1014 is this the best that i can get?
