I just recently (today), installed a Gigabyte Radeon 9700 Pro g-card into my rig. This replaced a Geforce 2 MX card. It installed with no problems.
I have since discovered a worrying occurence whenever I run any CPU intensive software. (e.g: Norton Antivirus, Norton Speed Disk, Evidence Eliminator...)
The computer at random, will simply cut itself off. The unit will lose all power for a second, then reboot. Its almost as if my CPU gives up on the task at hand. Is my new g-card creating a heightened surge in power that my CPU just cannot handle?
It was fine under the Geforce 2. However, this new g-card requires a router for power for its onboard fan and ram requirements. Am I asking too much of my machine?
Maplin have a 550 watt Power supply unit at half price £39-99 instead of £79-99. Post free for any order over £30. Unfortunately you will have to be quick to get this as today or maybe tomorrow is the last day on this offer. This unit has two fans.
