i have weird problem that i checked couple times and i seem to find the problem but it doesn't worth because i didn't get what i paid for.

the problem is when i play something a direct3d game' BFV, CS Source, LOTR middle earth , NFS underground 2 , etc, the game get freeze for couple sec like 5 secs and than get back, and it happens in all games sometimes after long gaming and sometimes after couple min.

i found than the mem is the cause i tried to downclock the geforce mem mhz from 1GB to 970 and it didn't happen anymore.

i also changed the cooling to zalman something new with aratic silver 5 on gpu and the mem, and i did that because i thought it will fix the problem, so it happend before and happens now with this cooling.

i disabled FW

AMD 2800+
1GB A-DATA 4000

everything updated i cleaned the os refresh os and cleaned old drivers, i tried all drivers, and i wanted to flash it but i don't know which vendor i can use.

i got the card with the newest bios ver, PIC :http://img80.exs.cx/img80/3940/untitled759.th.jpg (http://img80.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img80&image=untitled759.jpg)
it's REV 3 in mtk site so it's newest .

i tried the nvidia refrence rev 2 but i had freezes and the comp sometimes boot up so i flashed it back fast.

all the systems is tweaked for best performance & Stability

so plz help guys , will NEW VER OF BIOS do any good ? if so which vendor should i try ?

First of all, don't bump an hour after you make a thread. Second, since the card works when you downclock it, the memory is probably bad. If you can RMA/return the card, do so.
