Hi guys i was wondering if i can use any of the pic-e slots on my mobo for a single gfx card? or does it need to be in a certain 1?

I am using an XFX 250 GTS i think either the card or the slot is faulty.

I have built a new rig and i done a prime 95 test for 13hours and everything was stable, i then done a metest86+ for 6 hours and still stable.

Now when i enter a game (CSS) It all runs very smoothe and then suddenly it freezes and lags? does anyone have a suggestion on what might be causing it?

Kind regards Russam

What is the temp of the card when you are gaming?

Why is the thread title SLI if you are not asking anything about SLI?

You should change the title. Like sandyduff said, what has this got to do with SLI? You're only using 1 card right?

Also latest drivers?
