    I just got my new video card (PowerColor Radeon X1600 Pro), and eventually got it all set up, but now it'll only run for a few minutes before dropping me into a black screen (apparently no signal). Any suggestions as to what the problem could be?

    Yeah, I just upgraded to a 500W supply to be on the safe side... but that didn't seem to fix it. On the plus side it only happens when I try to start a game (HL2, WoW)...

    As far as I can tell, it appears that the video card is overheating... what can I do to fix this?
