Default Re: PCI-E Geforce 6800 Problem

Ok,so the integrated crap is turned off in the bios...
Is your molex connector connected to the new video card? They need a minimum 350watt power/supply.(sticker on p/s) If the system was completley stable before the card,it will either be a windows software issue or the power supply not being quite up to the task,I upgraded to a 450watt antec when I purchased my 6800,and then to 500watt when I purchased a 7900gt.This is another avenue to look at.I forgot they were power hungry little cards....most likely the problem,especially if you get no video corruption while playing.
