  1. The problem :
    When I play direct x games my comp will either crash or freeze.
    Games I've tested:

    Warcraft III - Crashing
    NBA Live 2005 - Can't even finish one damn game, freezes my whole comp, needa hit my restart button
    CS:Source - Havn't experienced much problems but sometimes game won't load up.

    My computer specs
    Motherboard : GIGABYTE K8 Trinton Series nForce 3
    CPU : Athlon AMD64 3000+ (not over clocked)
    RAM : 2 512mb Kingstons @400mhz (non dual channel)
    VGA : ATI Radeon 9550 Extreme (Manufacturer: Grandmars)
    Soundcard : Onboard
    Network : Onboard
    Others: Firewire Card (recently installed, possible link to my problem)

    What I've tried:
    It can't be my hardware issues, because all my hardware seems fine. Well nothing started happening since I installed my Firewire card but I don't see how it can be causing the problems unless anyone can give me ideas. So I formatted my computer because i got tired of trouble shooting, and.... installed NBA Live 2005, tried to play, FREEZE, same problem =[

    So now im pissed off because i spent 5 hours backing up all my data which didnt even fix the problem.

    Can someone please give me some sort of idea on how to fix this?
