I got a new pseudo-problem with the card, but not quite sure, hopefully you can help me figure it out.
I first came here asking about upgrading my computer system, it then switched to "just" changing the videocard. I did also buy a new power supply, and I was told 550W would suffice. I've been having some system freezes lately, and I was wondering what was happening.
So I got a new
videocard, new power supply and new video drivers
. I underline it cuz I've been asking on nVidia forums about the freezes, and at first they said (well, some people) that the drivers could be the culprit. I was told to use older version drivers, which I did, and it's been almost 3 days without freezes, while before I would get 1-2 freezes a day. So maybe that's settle. But I was also told that my 550W power supply wasn't enough for the card and my overclocked cpu... so the lack of power would also freeze the system?
The "funny" thing about the freezes, was that the system would freeze while *nothing was happening*. Got 6 freezes during the nights, 2 during the day (as I was watching tv or doing something else), so it kinda doesn't make sense that the power supply wouldn't be enough, no power is being over used here. So maybe the drivers were the problem.
What do you think?
