    hey guys

    after playing race grid driver for 20 mins or so, the screen goes blank and nothing i can do can make it come back, so i force restart.

    i was woundering if you guys had any idea what the problem is

    could it be my psu? feels quite hot?
    altho everything in my pc runs hot.

    my set up:
    enermax noisetaker II 600 W
    1900xt gfx
    asus p5n-32e sli
    q6600 cpu (the one which runs hotter, 1st edision)
    4 gig ram ocz platinum

    both my mobo and cpu run in the 50'c's when they are not even OC'd
    when gaming

    im not sure if this is ok, iv herd they run hot.

    so im nt sure that is causing the gfx black out

    could it be the oc settings on it, iv OC'd on ati catalyst control centre, it says i recommended OC is it at 700mhz gpu and 800mhz memory when i run the test. but i am running it at 655mhz gpu and 756mhz memory
    which i thought would be safe and it only OC's during 3d games.

    so do you guys have any idea on what the problem is?

    many many thanks in advance!

    :D

    First thing I would do is try playing without it OC'd. If it works fine then thats you problem.

    50c isnt particularly excessive in my opinion, what temp is the GPU hitting? It will be running hotter than normal if you have OC'd. Are you still using the stock cooler on the GPU, if so it could be temp related due to OC.
