Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Xt, (256 MB) Graphic Card
Switching on and off programs that use Directdraw I believe. I know it's something with Directx, opengl programs don't do this to me. Besides that games run fine. I was curious if this could be a hardware fault, using updated drivers. This card causes my old PSU to blow (my fault I was using a bare bones wattage) and i've taken it out of my pc about a week after replaying my PSU, too nervous to use it now. Is it safe? I got a power supply that exceeds recommended wattage now. (The problem persisted before and after psu blew)
Lets do some basic brainstorming together.
anytime you add additional componets to your motherboard, heating is a big issue and may cause over heating of the mb, hd, ram, video.
you will need additional power or wattage out put to support additional cards, fans,
additonal with the heat needs more air flow in the system, if you do not put more cooling devices in the computer to help it stay cool you may end up buying additional parts like mb, ram, hd, because the 1 fan in the power supply doesnt have enought power to cool the system down and than they get hot and they stop functioning right, freeze ups,
shut downs, power outages and so on.
there is a web site you should look at just as a peace of mind
they have lots of information on cooling systems and documents to help you with this issues
i hope i helped you
