I have a dell intel P4 2.8
i just installed a new XFX Geforce 6600gt. Upon starting up Doom 3 to see how it runs, the computer soon shutdown/froze up(i dont know which one) and the monitor went black. Upon turning down the resolution and such, i eventually got Doom 3 to run. I could not get any other 3d accelerated programs to run, however(the same system failure would occur for these too). I noticed that my stock power supply was only a 250watt and i needed a 300w to run the video card(according to nvidia manual). I installed a new 480w however doom still does not run at any higher quality settings. I updated all my drivers for the monitor and video card, and i do not know what to do next.... any help?

Welcome to Geeks To Go Jflashg,

I need some information from you, so that I can help. First I need you to run a program for me, click Start -> Run type dxdiag.

Now run all the tests under the Display, Sound, and Music. After all the tests are done save the information by clicking Save All Information. Save it to the desktop, then send me a PM with it attached.

Also what kind of PSU did you buy?? Was it a generic brand, or a brand name like ThermalTake, Antec, CoolMax, ect.??
