Yea because that is the problem with my computer.

When you run the games does it make a sound from the drive or the computer itself.

My bad, missed that. I think that basically he's trying to get too much out of the card, maybe it's time to cut his losses and get an 8800 or 9800

Is it just me, or are the problems in more demanding games? MSFS 10 is demanding but a 8500 should run it. I'm starting to wonder about RAM. Would you be able to run memtest on it?

Yeah, and like... you should totally format your hard drive because you know, those funky valuable word docs really slow down your computer! And what is this custom hardware? Throw it out right now, it has viruses on it and get yourself a respectful Dell. Next thing I know you will be talking about hacking into Linuxes super secret modular hydrobase.

Wow Bobby...

Those are the speeds of the fans. RPM= revolutions per minute I believe.

50-55 is well within the correct range of gpu temps.

I still say that the problem is with your drivers. If you can't determine whether they are up to do and really want us to find the problem, run dxdiag then save all the info and put it up here in a code box.

To run dxdiag in vista, just open up the start menu, type in dxdiag in the search bar and click on the thing that it finds. You can also go to Run->dxidag.

For XP, I believe you just Run-> dxdiag as well.

Post up the info here if you can't determine whether your drivers are out of date.
