Hello, I have built my first PC in the last month after alot of help from this forum to choose my hardware. The PC I built: Antec P182 Gunmetal Grey Super Mid Tower Case Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 SLACR 95W Edition" Asus P5K-E WiFi Motherboard Crucial Ballistix 2GB 1066MHz(BL2KIT12864AA1065) Serial ATA 200gb Hardrive Hiper 580W Type-M Black PSU SONY DVD-ROM DDU1613 NEC DVD_RW ND-2510A
The Problem i am having is with the computer shutting down and restarting it's self up straight away when i am gaming, seems not to do it when i am browsing the web or word processing. The computer seeems to be running cool enough and once restarted i can start gaming again. I am running vista as my os. Any help would be great as it's rarther fustrating. Thank you
The psu should be ok, it worked fine in my old pc, unsure if im low on power, any idea of a way to check, I am just reinsalling the nivada drivers now and will see what happens. some one mentioned it might be the safety temp shut down setting set to low, no idea where to look for them.
this card requires 400w minimum,so unless there is a fault with your psu it should be fine. A 550w psu will run two cards in sli mode. Use the latest driver from the nvidia website. Also look in control panel>problem reports and solutions,it should show what caused the problem.
