Question about ASUS GeForce FX 5600 (256 MB) AGP Graphic Card
When i first got the card with a different computer it worked fine, but then the old computer (this was about 2 years ago. almost 3) died on me so i gave the graphics card to a friend to put in his till i could replaced the m/bored and processor. i just got a K8V-X SE mainboard and a semperon 3400 processor and it works fine, plugged in the graphics card and during a few of the games it will work beautifully. but with other games such as: americas army, freelancer and Rome Total War. after a short period of time, say...10 mins? at the most. the graphics will become pixilated? is the best way i can really describe it. after this has happened the card gives the same pixilated graphics on all games and even in the softwear from nvidia where you can chose the type of 3d image you want to go for. performance/quality etc. untill the computer is rebooted then it is fine untill you use one of the games again. it turns out that the person using the card while i wasnt for the past few years had also had this problem latley but not always? is it that the card is over heating or some such? anything i can do or should i just get a new gfx card?
I also had this problem. I solved it by installing OLD nVidia drivers (56.72). Hope that helps!

It does sound like an overheating problem, although i have also found that this card doesn't work particularly well on all AMD motherboards, although it's an asus card and asus mobo you are using, it is the nvidia chip. You may find an ATI chip card works better on your board. Also check the voltage on your AGP slot as newer cards work on less voltage than the older ones.
