Hey i got a new asus n6800XT 128mb, it worked great for about an hour. Then it continued to work, but would no longer ran bf2, bf2 would flash and shut down like when i try to run it on my other pc with a 64mb vcard. I tried everything and system restored too. windows did update but i dont think that has anything to do with it. Please help.

List the rest of the specs, is this a generic PSU, if it is then i think it may bot be providing enough power. Doy uo have the latest drivers or the card and the rest of the hardware. You might also want to check the temps using rivatuner to see if the card is overheating.

asus n6800XT, 512 ram, 350w power, 80 gig hard drive.
yeah i installed the drives as soon as i installed it and it worked great. If it didnt work great for an hour i would think it was the drivers. But I agree with the power problems but smart doctor isnt showing anything and i thought it needed 300 watts or more, thats why i bought it.

Well depends on the PSU but on a new system i wouldnt feel comfortable with anything under 400W maybe one of the other techs will have more luck im going to go to bed.

I would still double check the drivers.
