Hi,

Ever since i got my new power supply all my 3d games seem to be getting graphical errors starting with artifacts showing up on in game units that will either get drastically worse so the game is unplayable, the game will go to a black screen and crash with this error http://i89.photobuck...69/CNCissue.jpg
Or (when i updated my graphics drivers) my video card will crash and ill have to reboot.

This problem can happen 2 minutes into the game to 2 hours.....

Also when i checked my directx (and updated it) i get this error when i go to test direct 3D

Direct3D 7 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x887602eb (error code)
Direct3D 8 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086a (3D not available)
Direct3D 9 test results: Failure at step 8 (Creating 3D Device): HRESULT = 0x8876086a (3D not available)



i have a geforce 6600gt with 6.14.0010.7730 driver
