It's kinda freak, but my computer keeps rebooting and I think it's my new GTX260 overheating but don't know what to do to fix it... I have tried put it in 2 fan cooling the up and down side of the VGA and nothing
Intel Core2Duo 2.2
MSI P45 Neo
2GB Ram DDR3 Dual Channel Kingston
550w default PSU
It sounds more like a PSU issue. What brand is it. Just because it says 550 watts doesn't mean it has enough power for to run the GTX.
