I've always had a problem with heat, I live above a chipshop and even in the winter its hot. In the summer its a nightmare! My computer desk doesnt have great air flow either, so for the last year i have left the side case off and pulled the tower out from the desk. It seemed to help, when i played games my pc wouldnt freeze up and reboot.
What would happen is my screen would go black, get a message 'no signal' then my computer would restart. Sometimes the screen would go black, then flicker and return to what i was doing. The problem has seemed to of gotten worse since i cleaned the inside of my computer with compressed air, to remove all the dust.
Now its happening alot, even when im not playing games.
All i know about my computer is, its around 4years old
AMD 64 3200+
1gb Of RAM
Windows Xp Home
Anyways this problem has brought me into looking for a new pc. Im looking at the:
"Ultima Extreme SLi 8800 GTX" Intel Core 2 Quadro QX9650 3.00GHz Quad Core SILENT DDR2 System
(from a computer website)
Now, im not a hardcore gamer anymore, so if anyone has a suggestion on what computer i should get, feel free to tell me =)
I do enjoy playing games quiet a bit, and i would like a computer that would run the top games decent.
Also some advice on what i can do when i get a new computer, as the heat where i live is terrible!
Just really looking for a bit of advice from people who know about computers =)
Thanks in advance!
(hope this is the right place to ask)
