  1. I just had upgraded my pc from:

    Video Card: 9400gt 512mb -----> GTX 460 768mb :D
    Motherboard: ECS G31T-M7 -----> (No Change) :mad:
    PSU: Generic -----> HuntKey Max700w :D
    CPU: Intel Pentium E2200 -----> (No Change) :mad:
    Ram: 1 (1gb) and (1) 2gb -----> (No Change) :)

    My PC was perfectly FINE before i upgraded. Could someone tell me what's wrong??? I've been reformatting three times already but no luck.... :(

    You need to tell us when it is freezing, i.e. randomly or when you are doing specific things.

    1. What is the make of your harddrive?

    2. What security software do you have installed?

    3. Did your PSU come with your case?

    4. Did you update your video card drivers?

    Good for you! So the video card was bad afterall. Interesting because those 460 cards are nice

    Thanks much for letting us know.
