Default Re: Graphics Card Crashing during games

its not overclocked at all.. as for the psu, without taking it apart and checking right now, i can tell you that its stock and probably not very much. is there a general idea of how much power i would need for the card? if so i will look into buying a new one.

as for the heat, there's just the gpu fan and then the two on the pc, so if that's an issue then i can look into getting more.

I'm eventually going to build one from scratch and keep the gpu and probably the ram, but for now im trying to find out what's wrong with this one.

The 8600GT Doesnt Require a PCIE Plug,but it does require a relatively good PSU,I Would recomend getting a 400w+ PSU,with 19amps or more to run this card.
