Well That Was Fast Gotta Make It Last

As my last post stated i am in the process of upgrading my pc to truly be fit to be called a gaming pc even if it is pretty norm.

Last time got a new hard drive. Last night, got a new Graphics card, the Visiontek Radeon 5770 1GB GDDR5 128-bit

Now keep in mind, i was coming from an oldschool Asus GeForce 7300 LE/SE.

All I did though was uninstall all nVidia drivers and other related programs on my hard drive... and then rebooted and installed the new card and drivers.

Went from the disc drivers CCC 9.10 to 10.4 and then back to 10.3 since it was the last stable one as far as I know.

However my temps are good everything else seems fine, yet occasionally, not often but occasionally my computer will just shut off my monitor as if it wasnt connected or black screen and freeze up. Then its time to hard boot.

I've narrowed it down to two things It could be and that i need to do...
1. Uninstall CCC and related drivers, driversweep, and then try again.
and if thats not it, then:
2. Powersupply upgrade sooner than expected as I think it may not be getting enough juice at times causing the lockups.

It was going to be my next upgrade anyways, however due to circumstances I think I may get that and see if it solves it sooner.

Well, for now I can at least game since it doesnt happen often

Till next time, cheers to hopefully solving this ^_^
