WoW and gaming problem

By pboxx

  1. Ok i have been playing WoW for a while now (over a year) but a few days ago it (and all my other games) started to freeze. I ran a full system scan for viruses, trojans, and spyware and came up empty. My only thought now is that it must be my video card (GeForce4 Ti 4600) that is malfunctioning. I updated the driver and the only change is that games unfreeze after 10 or so seconds instead of freezing completely. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and do you think its my video card or something else?

    2 Things:

    1.) Have you got proper cooling? Are you sure it's not overheating? Are the fans clogged up with dust?
    2.) What's your PSU wattage?

    You'll have to open up your PC I'm afraid. At the top of the box you'll find a smaller box, the PSU (sorry if this is patronising) On the side you'll find some info, for example "Bestec-250" the number next to the brand is usually the wattage. It may be located elsewhere though.
