  1. hey guys i got this issue but i dunno what the problem is because when i play need for speed most wnated i dont get this issue but when i play fear combat i can play maybe somtimes for hours or maybe just 15 mins and i get these red artifacts and the pc just freezes at that point.

    I got an gainward 8800gt 1gb but i had the same issue with a 8600gts i had before.
    my spec ares as follows:

    x2 5200
    hiper 880w psu
    msi k9n sli mobo
    4gb ocz reaper x memory
    2gb kingston memory
    64bit vista

    let me know if u need more info but im really confused why this is happening can anyone shed light on this.

    Your 64-Bit Vista is probably contributing to this problem. If you are a gamer, why a64-bit Operating System?
