ahhhh i dont know whats wrong
Right first things first will give you a full run down of my hardware
Swiftech MCX478-V + tornado
OCZ Platinum 1gig 3200
Sound Blaster Audigy
adaptec Scsi 29160
The issues im having appear to be gfx based but that has just been replaced from the 9700pro i did have to the 9800....
The problem im having is my PC locking up randomly when playing games and benchmarking..
although when i am playing games, if i am running mp3s they keep going so its like it dies completly
i have tried all the difernt drivers under the sun inlcuding the omega drivers...
i have flashed my bios to f6 and i have the latest agp drivers installed
i am running xp at the moment and had the same problems under 2k
i have stripped my system down to the barebone just my gfx card and one hdd connected and still got the same problems...
the only thing i think of is a faulty mobo or compatiabilty issues with gigabyte and ati chipsets
if its the mobo what would u recomend....
prefably not gigabyte
i need one that has sata and is good for oc....

what kind of chipset is on that mobo???
i think gigabyte is very good!!!
maybe u just have to buy a new mobo (w/ an other chipset)

I would look at the the power supply and the temps before I assume the board is bad...

Check the voltages of the PSU, easily done via the bios....

yeah i thought that,, dunno if i used too much paste or not enough or summit
dunno y it gets that hot... i think the room temp dont help some times
most of my pc in no more than 3 months old
im using the dps u get with the board but that dont make much odds
and i had the same trouble when i had my old psu
i have been slowley replacing everything to try and solve it
which gets kinda expensive after a while
the only things not replaced r the mobo and soundcard
