Everytime I buy a game for PC they crash after a few minutes.

Using a Nividia GE Force fx5600 card

Can you help

You might need to put a few more details in about your o/s, what is the spec for the rest of your p/c.

Have you updated your graphics drivers from the Nvidia website?
If you are using old drivers that may be the problem?

Graphics card drivers ar likely to be the problem. I have the Nividia GE Force fx5900 Ultra card in my PC. Having similar problems a while ago, I updated the drivers and problem solved.

It "could" also be caused by insufficient power from PSU,drivers(as said)heat in graphics card/PC,etc.If your running XP,it will have a record of what XP thought was crashing the system.If it ONLY crashes with games,then the chances are its graphics card problem,if it crashes other times(unexpectedly)look at other sources(heat,etc)
