    Ok, here's the dealy-o.

    I've recently been having "trouble" with my computer. You see if I try to run a game -such as Raven Shield, or XIII -My computer lets me have a few minutes of gaming bliss, then rudely crashes to desktop, usually sighting a general protection fault.

    "Ah!" I hear you say,"Those games both use the Unreal engine, that must be where the problem lies". But I say "NAY!" for UT2k3 runs peachy-keen, and the problem also extends to other non-UT engine games, such as Tron 2, Couter-Strike, and Earth and Beyond (Which actually causes my box to die and reset).

    I thought it could've been dodgy RAM, but (A) this has only started happening in the last week or so, (B) I can render very large, CPU/RAM hogging animations in Lightwave for 6hrs without a hitch, and (C) I swapped the Ram with a friends and the problem still persisted.

    I've reinstalled my video drivers and directX 9.0 incase there was a problem there, but IT'S STILL HAPPENING!!! ARGH! HELP!!!
