I just installed a brand new MSI K8Tneo2-f mobo and an AMD64 3500+. I was expecting leaps and bounds better graphics in my games, well.........I got the exact opposite. I have an ATI 9800pro. Now when I start a game, I get either what looks like a monitor gone into standby mode, screen goes black light goes to yellow, or the game freezes or the game freezes and I can move my mouse...but only vertically and one position. This happens within a minute including loading time for the game. Oviously I can still surf and work on the desktop seeing how I can post here. Does it sound like my card is cooked? It was fine the moment before I took the old board and chip out, played a game so I could get a fresh comparison. I already placed a Vantec ICEBERQ fan on the card, the old fan died. Is it possible the new board heats the card beyond this coolers capacity? I am not entirely new to mobo/cpu replacement, but this is the first time I've had this happen. I can't see anything obvious in the BIOS settings.................can somebody make some suggestions or give me a link to a good vidcard tester before I go buy a new card. Sapphire 9600XT 256m, any good........just in case.
