    Having probs with my Tiger Woods PGA 08 Golf game. (Only real game I have)

    Was fine but now when the course i choose starts to load it crashes the system before completing.
    1. wondered if it was Graphics card. have a radeon 9600. (quite an old card) Put on
    latest drivers but that almost seemed to make it worse. Have no problems with
    other applications. Should i try and find original disc with drivers and load them or
    do I need a new card. Suggestions of a good step up from the 9600 would be valuable.

    2. Also wondered if it was a memory problem. have 3 sticks of crucial 512MB DDR
    PC3200. Gives me 1536MB which the Crucial Scan says was my maximum. Crucial
    test also says it only sees 3 slots but I have 4. maybe Motherboard is on its way out?

    3. Mistakingly allowed a friend (supposed computer whiz kid!!) to put on an ATI tool and
    overclock. wasn't happy about what was happening and stopped it and reset to
    defaults. being a silver surfer i thought he knew what he was doing. maybe thats'
    damaged something.

    Running Win XP. let me know if anyone has advice or needs mor info. Much obliged. thanks.
