  1. I am running a:
    Athlon 64 3200+ Socket 939 (non-overclocked)
    Asus A8V Mobo
    1GB Patriot PC3200 DDR SDRAM
    ATI X850Pro 256 MB DDR SDRAM AGP
    8x Generic DVD Burner
    Maxtor 250 GB SATA 7200 RPM HDD
    WD 60GB IDE 7200 RPM HDD
    2x 120mm fans
    1x 60mm fan
    1x Generic AMD heatsink w/ fan
    400w Coolmax PSU

    My computer shuts itself off after playing BF2 and other resource intensive programs, the temps look fine, the CPU never going over 45 celsius and the case never over 29 celsius, not sure what the problem could be, though i suspect a lack of power as the culprit, let me know what you think. Thanks.

    Your probably right probably want to upgrade that and get a bit better PSU that a most consistant voltage level then coolmax.
