Default Re: PCI-E Geforce 6800 Problem

Hello. I am having the same exact problem, the "skipping" or "stuttering" while playing WoW, Warcraft 3 The Frozen throne, or even while playing CSS. Sometimes I get the blue screen of death and it crashes, but mostly the game continues functioning normally. In CSS the colors **** up, but i can still play. Same graphics card, 6800 GT. However, I believe my problem is due to the actual temperature of the graphics card. It idles at about 80 C and yesterday went up to 106 C while running a graphic intensive program. I have my case open so as to make it colder. System Specs:

P4 2.8ghz
1 Gig ram Dual channel
120 GB hard drive (4 partitions)
Power supply 350 Watts

Buy an aftermarket cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186132 your card is going to fry at those temperatures,also grab some thermal paste http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007 clean off the old goo with paper towels of another soft type cloth.Cover all memory chips and GPU with a thin coat of as5,approx 1mm or thinner.Attach cooler with screws and spacers provided,that should fix your temp problems..

I second using the official v84.21 drivers from nvidia, i had absolutely zero problems with my 6800/6800GT cards. For drivers to work correctly, you must UNinstall them the correct way and i mean not just by using the add/remove programs in windows. After removing the driver from windows, you must use "driver cleaner pro" in safe mode(press F8 during bootup), so heres what you do...

1. UNinstall nvidia drivers using add/remove programs in windows and reboot when prompted
2. During bootup, hit F8 and choose "safe mode" from listed menu
3. Use driver cleaner pro and choose nvidia from the drop down menu
4. After the access files are removed, reboot and go back into windows
5. Install the nvidia driver of your choice and reboot once again when prompted
6. Install coolbits2(nvidia) to overclock your video card and reboot once more

I've used this method many times w/o issue... but if your still having problems, im looking at that 380w PSU. Depending on the brand and the quality along with the amperage on the +12v line, its possibly not enough. With todays newer systems, they rely heavily on the +12v line and depending what your total system specs are, just to be safe, you will need at least 26a for starters.

Ps- Please list your total system specs, name and brand of everyting.
