    I just got a new graphic card for my desktop and while im playing WoW (only game im currently playing) i keep getting random video freezes. The mouse still moves around and i still hear the sound from the game, but the games video just stops for about 10-20 seconds. Usually it un-lags and fixes itself, but other times it just crashes the game and goes back to my desktop and its in like a 4bit color look, then shuts off all video feed about 10 seconds after.

    Card is an EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE

    If needed i can list all other pc specs.

    Help plx. =[

    EDIT: Just took out the old graphic card and decided to just send it back to get a replacement incase its some kinda of flaw from production. Decided to just use my onboard graphics instead of reinstalling and then uninstalling my old card while i wait the week for the other one to come back.Onboard graphics are 256 and now my game is instantly crashing and blue screening when i get on. Any ideas?

    Blue screen error message: 0x0000008E (0x80000004, 0x806ECAE1, 0xA6CA1814, 0x00000000)
