It's a custom built gaming PC that i bought from e-bay for 400$.
Can't remember the link. (it's on my old PC)
OS - Win Xp Pro.
Processor- AMD ATHLON II X2 240 Processor, 3D now (2CPUs), ~2.8 GHz
Video- NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT
Display Mode- 1440 x 900 (32 bit) (60Hz)
It has happened in other games too. Oblivion, Darkfall, WoW, and Farcry. (Have not played many other games though)
It also crashes every once in a while and says it has recovered from a serious Error.
Here's the link to the screens.
Here is a link to the e-bay auction on my PC.
My video card is not the same as the one i was supposed to get and i think my processor is different too. I used dxdiag to find out what my PC has and it does not say REGOR anywhere. Not sure what they did or didn't put in my PC.
The frame is also different, it is an Alien ware Dracula and not what is shown in the picture, basiclly the same though.
I also forgot to say that the graphic problems are not permanent and going through a loading screen or restarting the game makes them go back to normal.
I downloaded the updates for my card just a little while ago and i will try my games soon, i also downloaded the
http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=163 and it says i am running at 35c as I'm typing now and i have not tried it on a game yet. (Not sure if i looked at the right thing)
EDIT~ Was just playing WoW and it was at 36c but hit 40c a few times. I have no heater and it is like ~20 Degrees ATM in my house so that may be effecting the temp.
(My hands and feet are burning and numb at the same time, thats true hardcore gaming lol)
And about the power, if i have everything shut off in one side of my house would that help at all or would the power issues (if any) only be a PC hardware problem.
Example- Is there a caped amount of power that can go into the PC and the fan is using a lot of it but the Graphics needs a lot too but since the fan and other stuff needs a lot of power the graphics card can't get the power it needs to survive?
^ Really bad at explaining things. (lol) I'll try to explain through math. (lol)
Computer power cap is 100-> Fan uses 40 of it-> RAM uses 20-> and the Video card needs 60 but is only getting 40 of it.
Is that how the power supply works? Like i said i know nothing about computers.
Feel free to laugh at my explanations. (lol)
BTW i do not know what Overclocking is, could someone tell me.
Monitor is LCD.
