i bought this graphics card two days ago and its giving me the hiccups..
i bought it as i wanted to play rise of nations on this machine, i could play it using the onboard graphics slot but sometimes during the game it just freezes and i have to reset it each time
so, having installed it.. i tried to run the game but it just crawls (cpu usage at 100%) and i had to end task
also the same situation happens when i try to watch a movie (.mpg .avi and dvd formats)
i recently loaded a game called spell forge and it runs smoothly (it demands graphics support so i doubt if the card or cpu having any heat problems)
anyway, when it hangs the processes doing the damage are the ones i use to play movies with (winamp, media player and powerDVD), tried them one at a time and same thing happens
any of you heard of a similar problem and a solution? google and card manufacture support are unkind to me
