We just bought my brothers comp a new graphics card BFG GeForce 7300 GS OC. We installed it and got the drivers and the system recognizes it. When he tries and play games on steam like Counter-Strike Source, Day of Defeat Source the computer freezes. When i put the CD in the drive it freezes. When i go to my computer and click it, the comp freezes instantly. and when it is starting up usually it will freeze. Any help?

When he says the CD he means the nVidia drivers for the card. But he's downloaded the latest drivers off their website. It only happens with SOURCE games also. Also, I told him it might be bad RAM and he's switching his and his bro's atm.

Edit: Also its a Gateway but I don't know what model. He said the people at TigerDirect says the mobo is bad but I think they just him to buy stuff.

Nevermind, I was right, it was the RAM.
