Just purchased a new computer this week, along with a new graphics card and a memory upgrade, heres the specs:
AMD 64 3300 (not overclocked)
1024mb ddr400 memory
GeForce 6600gt OC Driver 188.8.131.52
160gb seagate HD
Creative EAX Audigy 2 sound card
Heres my problem, bought half life 2 and installed. Game constanly freezes and crashes at various points of game. I have read online thru some forums that this is common and have accepted the fact until a patch comes out. So I installed Battlefield Vietnam and installed latest patches, start playing and it also locks up and crashes. I have downloaded all the latest drivers for my sound and video cards, disabled norton antivirus and my firewall and still run into this problem. I can accept not being able to play Half Life, but Battlefield Vietnam ran perfectly with my older Pentium 1.4, 512mb rambus memory, ATI 9600. If you guys have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
