Default Re: 6600 GT OC problem

Hi, I'm new to this site, but I actually just had around the same problem today. I have a BFG 6600 GTOC and a 300W(stock) PSU. Worked fine until I got a new soundcard, Creative X-Fi Xtrememusic, and after I installed it I was getting artifacts all over Battlefield 2. So I checked the temp and it was 78C. Normally its about 68C after heavy Battlefield 2 play. So i thought maybe it was because I had the soundcard directly underneath the graphics card. I moved the sound card to the next PCI slot and put the modem where under the graphics card. Then I was playing a game and the computer shut off. Nothing would happen, tried unplugging and hooking everything back up and still nothing. When I hit the power button, the fans go for a couple seconds and the grahpics card light lights up then stops. Took the graphics card out, then no problem, everything worked fine.
PS, sorry for the long post, but I figured the more details the better
Thanks a lot!
