OK, this one I seriously cant figure out. Ever since I reinstalled Windows XP after installing my Gigabyte mobo and chipset, I've been having problems with running games under DirectX... For some reason, if I run a game, it will run fine for abou 3 minutes or so, and then out of nowhere artifacts will start popping up all over the screen and slow the fps rate waaaay down... I've already checked to see if there are any issues with the motherboard and the card, but have found none (which would be very strange, seeing that it's a nForce3 chipset...) I've also checked to see if it's been overheating, but its been cooler in this case than it was in the other case! I called PNY for help, but, just as my luck was, they had seemed to close before they we're supposed to close, and I can only call before 2 PM if I want to get a hold of a representative, (which is kinda hard, seeing that I have this thing called a life that seems to get in the way of that...). I checked nVidia's site on the problem, and they reported that people have been having the same problem and to download some driver... which didnt help at all. And checking PNY's website for help is a joke upon itself, seeing that there is no way to get a hold of tech support without calling them or sending an RMA in. Can anyone help a gamer in need?

If you are not overclocking the card and your PSU has good volt rails RMA the card and make them send you a different one.They should have better tech support but I guess it is cheaper for them just to replace the card RMA style than to pay tech support people.

I've been thinking about doing that, but the thing is that it used to work just fine before I did the reformat, so... Maybe it's s driver problem?
