Angry My Computer Keeps FREEZing when opening games

Hey guys,

On Boxing Day, I bought a brand new video card from NCIX.com
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...E&promoid=1065

I bought this card because I heard it can unlock 4 more pipelines and overclock to speeds of an xt. So I bought it, I didn't try unlocking the 4 piples, and overclocked it at 480 core/ 550 mem. I stoped there and ran battlefield 2. Then it frozed at the "EA Games! Challenge Everything." After 5 seconds, the monitor automaticly shut off. It also froze when I ran 3d mark 05.
Is my overclock too high? Other people got theirs alot higher than mine.

Any help would be nice.

I got mine at 550MHz GPU core, and a 600MHz core memory. Mine can't unlock though.

It WILL lock up if I crank my processor to 2.68GHz, but all in all a 550MHz GPU core, and a 1.2Ghz (600x2) memory core with an AMD 64 @ 2.6Ghz is nice.

Are the cards exactly same? Same manufacturer etc?
And if they raise the voltage then the card will oc better.
What temps are u running? Also overheating can cause the card to freeze. (and because of that u can't oc as high as they can)
