  1. Hi all,

    I'am still very wet behind the ears when it comes to this stuff, But recently i bought a new pc and with it came 2 * geforce 9800gt 512 gc shiny I thought but has given me nothing but problems, I play cod4 eve and supreme comander mainly.

    Problems i'am getting are when playing cod4 i can play for about 10 mins then i get a load of weird graphic errors ( screen going a nice rainbow color) and i'am unable to do anything other than do a force reboot, I have got the latest drivers from nvidia,, Disabled sli , and a few other tweeks but to no avail now its started doing it on my other games as well :(

    system as follows

    Mb- MSI P6N SLI-FI
    Proc - Intel core duo duo e8400 3.00ghz
    500 gb sata2 7200rpm
    2 x geforce 9800gt 512
    creative labs audigy xfi 7.1

    cant find name of the psu unit but its an 800w one
    Windows xp pro

    Any ideas ??

    Your cards might be overheating. Have you monitored the GPU temps while playing a game? You can log the temps using RivaTuner.
