A 440 card will struggle to run Day Of Defeat (I presume) at the best of times. It could be down to that.

Does this only happen when playing games? It is possibly a heat related problem, how many fans have you got fitted to your case? not including PSU and heatsink, does your video card have a fan fitted? is it working?

i have two fans on the rear of case no the video card has no fan it only happens on games i played day of defeat and call of duty in the past for hours it never happened then it only occured after installing dod sourse

Is there a update patch for the game?

i would have thought the 440 would struggle to play these games and i would look to change the card

no such thing as a cheap replacement but if you want to find the best for cheap id say ebay, but u gotta mak sure if u do upgrade that your graphics card is compatible then get the drivers if they dont cum with it

take a look at click here there are plenty of modern cards in the agp format that will be more than ample for your needs. go for the dearedt you can afford.
