For a few months now, whenever I play a game, i get anywhere from 1-20 minutes of game play before the on-screen action freezes and the sound glitches and repeats. I've tried removing my onboard sound and just using my sound blaster, I've tried removing my sound blaster and just using the onboard, I've tried moving my video card to the other slot on my mobo, I've tried taking out each stick of ram and trying them individually in each slot. I also tried updating my PSU from a 350 to a 680 watt. I've tried updating drivers, updating direct x, and updating windows. I think I've pretty much ruled out a software problem though, because I fresh installed windows xp 64 and I still have the same problem. The specific games I play and crash on are Warcraft 3, Call of Duty 2, Elder Scrolls 4, and Counter-strike: source. The only games that seem to work are Starcraft and the Battlefield 2 Demo. I've done everything I can think of to solve this problem and I've gotten nowhere; my only other thought is that God might hate me, so if anybody has any other ideas, pease let me know.
