MSI 8800GT freeze

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.

Re: MSI 8800GT freeze

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.

hopefully that helps.

Games are not run in my card.

Older games(like those that require 256mb) were made to work on lower resolution video cards, they can't upscale to higher resolution. This is like taking a photo with an old camera and trying to make it bigger, it gets blurred. The problem with crashing is most likely caused by the game being made for an older operating system like XP/98 rather than windows vista, 7, or 8.

I think the solution for this might be using a Virtual Desktop Program which is a program that mimics an older computer so you can run older programs. Some of these are free or free trials. This youtube video might help.

I just wanna kno if my GTA4 is gonna work smooth in full grafics with this card..

Well without knowing the card, i can tell you this.
I have a 8800gt 512mb, 4gb's ram and a 3ghz c2d e6600 and i get an average 42fps using the in game benchmark. It depends really what resolution you want to play at. I play at 1440 x 900. You would need at least a nvidia 8600gts or Ati equivalant card to play the game. Also a core 2 duo is definately needed to play this game smoothly- better yet if you have a core 2 quad. If you are using a laptop then I could almost certainly guess that it wont work. If you have a pc using intel graphics then it wont work either.

I need new grapics card for my imedia 1401

That card will not work.

That is your computer spec link. The motherboard and other parts are older and do not support that PCIe x16 card. Only PCI graphics cards will work in your PC.

No graphics card will make this PC a gaming beast but you can certainly upgrade by purchasing a PCI graphics card such as these listed here:

You can sort by price, or # of reviews and see which ones people the most. Generall a higher # of reviews and good reviews means it performs better than other similar priced products.

A cheap solution would be the 1st one listed by price:
