  1. Specs

    AMD Athlon XP 2800+
    Nvidia nForce 2 Mobo (updated drivers)
    120 GB HD
    512 mb of dual RAM
    Radeon 9200 128 mb (Old Card)

    Ok Im replacing the old card with a new Radeon 9700 AWi Pro 128 mb, so I buy a new ps, 350 watts, hook up everything, uninstall the drivers, everything. It comes on but after a while white lines and squares flicker all over the place, sometimes when I re inserted the card it would start up fine and then freak out again, juts dont know what to do! Please please help me out.

    Maybe the new psu you got isn`t upto the job.

    I would suggest a psu more in the region of 450w and of good quality I.E Antec or Themaltake etc.
