Hey all... I'm trying to figure out how to troubleshoot a problem that i suspect is with my video card. Whenever i play any high intensive games on my computer (and sometimes other video), the game will play fine for awhole and then all of a sudden with no warning it straight freezes. I have no mouse control or anything... Even after a clean format the problem is still there. It never happened for the first while i had the specs that i've listed below.

Thanks,
--Lostboy

i would go through the usual list of suspects:

-heat
-driver issues
-bad card

have you ever oc'ed? did you try going back to stock? what are the specs of your machine? what OS?
