  1. I am running an AMD Athlon xp 1.6ghz with an asus chipset and 512 mb ram
    I just installed a XFX Nvidia Geforce 6200 256 mb in an agp 8X slot
    But whenever i try to run a game like NFS Most wanted,the comp restarts everytime.
    Please Help..

    You didnt mention installing drivers, I'm thinking that since you know what your chipset is, more than likely you know enough to install drivers. But just in case you didnt...:p

    The 6200 line of cards are not good my friend, seriously. You have AGP, try to find a better more powerful card. If you have PCI slots which i do, you are limited, but you using AGP, you have better choices. I had the BFG Geforce 6200 and the evga version, both performance well was worse then the FX5550.

    Good luck!
