I have recently upgraded my graphics card to an xfx 8800gt xxx, and installed it and it runs fine. But, after maybe an hour of play it sometimes crashed and i got an error screen telling me that the driver had stopped working.
So i went onto the website and downloaded the newest drivers i could find, and installed them completely removing the old drivers with driver cleaner pro.
Now when i play sometimes the screen will go all funny, and i might get only a few correct images from the hud, everything else being mainly one colour. So i have to exit whatever im playing and reboot my computer. I get the same problem with a newer set of drivers.
Is this just the drivers? Or could it be my system? My old graphics card (a 6600gt) used to cause my computer to freeze alot, though i was running that with a cheap psu. My onboard graphics ran fine without any issues, could it be my pci express slot?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My system is.
MS 7093 with an Athlon 64 3500+
1Gb Mitsubishi RAM
OCZ 600w PSU
200gb Sata Seagate Baracuda
xfx geforce 8800gt xxx
