    My rig:

    Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
    Asus P6t Deluxe Motherboard
    Intel Core I7 920 at 2.66ghz CPU
    XFX GTX 280
    Ultra X3 800 watt Power Supply
    6GB of Corsair DDR3 at 1600mhz
    750GB hard drive

    Ok so here is my issue. Randomly, my pc will crash in games. The crash happens instantly, the screen will turn a solid color and a loud repetitive noise will run in the backround. At this point i cannot do anything, and my pc will do this untill i shut it off.

    There is no blue screen on restart, and my Event Viewer shows nothing out of the ordinary.

    I have tried 3 different GPU drivers, all with the same result. I have also RMA'ed my GPU, the problem persists.

    I ran Memtest on each stick of ram, and it passed every time on each stick.

    I torture tested my CPU, normal temps.

    Last night i re-installed windows. I was up untill 4 in the morning trying to get everything installed.

    PLEASE help me, what should i do next? It seems im really un-luckey, and nothing i get ever works!

    Notes:

    I ran my webcam to see what happens when the crash happens, the video stops the second it happens. The whole machine is stalled.

    I havent ever had it happen in Crysis. It seems to happen the most in Guild Wars, Warhammer online, Cod4.

    What's up with your new installation of Windows? Did it solve it?

    also a note.

    I updated my motherboard bios and it did not happen for 2 weeks, it happend today so i updated it to the new most updated bios. This one froze in the same day and crashes are getting more frequent.

    Is your GPU connected to a power supply connector?

    I do not understand what you are asking.

    My GPU is connected by 2 wires (6pin and 8pin) running from my gpu to my psu.

    That's what I wanted to know.
    I suggest you talk to the store from which you bought your PC.
