Not sure if my current PSU is supporting my new GPU - Page 2

As for my system, the only overclocked part is the CPU. its 2.4 stock with 266 FSB and I OC it at 3.0 with 333 FSB. Doesnt get hot or return errors :\\
I had the same issue that you had back when I upgraded from a 9800 GTX+ to a GTX 260. My motherboard was an EVGA 680i SLI, and I had an E8400 overclocked to 4.0GHz. When I installed the GTX 260, my system became totally unstable and I ended up having to increase the CPU's core voltage a little along with a couple of other adjustments in the BIOS.

So, that's what I meant. Although, it looks like you may have gotten lucky and perhaps somehow your system may have recovered. However, I wouldn't relax just yet...

Indeed, I relaxed prematurely

Seems everytime I play for an extended period of time the game will just randomly crash immediately after seeing a few graphical artifacts.

Can be anywhere from 15 minutes in to 45 minutes...extremely random.

I've checked the temps on the card and they get to 63 at full load peak.

Would it help if i gave you my full system info and settings? aka ram and timings and such.. :x I'm not too keen on not OC'ing my q6660 since that would just mean I'd have to buy a new mobo / cpu which I've been putting off.

To be honest, I think all you have to do is re-stabilize your CPU overclock.

what do you mean by re-stabilize? The only thing I've changed in the bios are the FSB Freq / Ram Freq and Ram timings. I've even reverted the core voltage to auto ;x

How about trying to set your bios to "optimized defaults."

What I mean is that it was once stable before, but now it's not. So you might have to give it more core voltage, or you may find that other tweaks bring your stability back. So, you just have to do what you did before when you achieved stability before.

Is it possible the card is faulty? or would I get much more errors, etc?

What I mean was using default values in my bios for my ram puts it at 600mhz instead of 1333mhz which it should be.

Forget the 1600 part, I really meant 1333 ;p
