I'm having trouble with my new graphics card. It's a Club3D 7600gt. Games crash, some more frequently than others (For example, I tried playing Painkiller and it was about 20 minutes before it crashed, HL2 Lost Coast I can't even get past the first part, Battlefield 2 doesn't seem to crash at all). I also got a blue screen when I tried to play FEAR (STOP:0x0000008E nv4_disp.dll) I've got the latest drivers from the nvidia site and updates for Windows. I read somewhere that I should turn off AGP fast writes in the BIOS but I don't see the option for it. I'm sure it's the graphics card as when I disable it and use the onboard gpu games play fine ( as in they don't crash at all). Any help would be good.

Hey mozzer11,

I am wondering if this could be a power supply issue? Does your current PSU meet the minimum requirements of your new graphics card? I am just wondering if you are giving it the juice that it needs? You might want to see what the power requirements are for your new GPU, and then make sure that your PSU is able to supply it. Hope this helps, good luck.
