I've got MSI 8800GT. My computer always freeze after 10-15 minutes in every games with Windows XP and Vista, too. I've got a newest Forceware (169.09), but before I have tried all forceware drivers (WHQL and Beta, too). Asus P5K motherboard, Chieftec 550W, Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz, Kingston 4Gb 800MHz DDRII. I can't imagine what's the problem (Card's temperature or card's memory or what?). I'am sure the Power supply is ok. I've tried the card with other computers and the problem is same.
I think the 8800 might have been overclocked either in factory or by you personally. this leads to freezing occasionally. other than that is temperature (check fan settings). finally if your still having problems try exchanging the card for another, it'll probably have been because of hardware defects. it happens.

well first of all vista is slow and ur system may be a bit to old for vista, but thats cause vista is stupid, see vista will do ten things to do one thing! make sense see vista is just a pretty version of xp, Your computer is fast but also you installing a horrible OS on it, just stick with XP man unless you really liked vista then just a newer computer will solve this, just stick to XP.
LOL ok 2 GB harddrive haha ur Operating System is at least 9 GBS lol maybe you meant 20 lol
The problem is that your version of XP does not have SATA drivers and therefore does not recognise your new drive. Vista does.
If you Google the problem you will find many solutions on how to rectify the situation.
Basically, you have to make a floppy disc with the correct drivers for your Motherboard's hard drive controller. Then, when you launch your Windows XP installer, it will ask you a question about needing to install 3rd party drivers. Yes is your answer. Tap F6 to ensure that the installer doesn't skip.Insert the floppy disc and then after the drivers are loaded, the installation will proceded normally.
The other alternative is to leave your existing XP installation in place and add the new disc.
Later you can clone your old disc onto the new drive and then remove your original disc.
