    Hi miclarry - what operating system are you running? Do you have the latest drivers for your graphics card? Do you know what version of DirectX you have? To check - for XP, go start>run>then type dxdiag and click ok. It will tell near the the bottom of a list. For Vista, it's start, type dxdiag in the search box and it will be under the system tab. Also click the display tab and make sure the Direct Draw and the Direct 3D acceleration are enabled. If there's one for PCI-E make sure that's enabled too. Let me know your answers. Thanks.

Freezes while playing WOW or graphics go berserk.


Thats odd. Try cleaing out the cooling fins with compressed air to get ou the dust. Take out the card and put it back in.  Have you tried updating the driver? try this stuff and see if it helps. I hope it does. cobrasdh
