OK so I did as instructed and got this as soon as the welcome screen came up. I'm running it now though and will upload any new crashes. Anything else you want me to do?

This is the exact Graphics Card I'm using by the way! http://www.powercolor.com/global/pro...#Specification

Houston, we have a situation:

Either the graphic card is got problems or it could either be the PSU not providing adequate power to the card as mentioned by Britton30..

The only way to test now is either with a different power supply or with different graphics card... Try borrowing either one of them from your friends and test..

I'm hoping it's the PSU and not the card! I will have to buy one from ebuyer can you reccomend one that doesn't cost the earth as christmas has broke the bank! It's running fairly fast right now but I guess that would be because it's got enough power to move it's ass, but if I try a game or something it'll probably crash won't it!

Well like i said Test before you buy anything ...

Just borrow a PSU from a friend roughly the same 800Watts or more and if your system works fine with this supply and the graphics cards.. you are good to go with a new PSU buy.

Otherwise you would need to replace Graphics card.

OK I will do that then! I do have another Graphics Card but it's only a radeon 4350 it doesn't even need it's own power supply! should I try that or is that pointless? Shall I mark this thread as solved and give you guy's +rep now?

Well wait..

The whole point of doing the PSU test is to see if the PSU can supply enough power to your exisiting card..

You can try the radeon 4350... after the PSU test...

I will wait for the PSU test before you mark this post as solved... and then please rep those helped.

Happy New Year to you as well.

Here's some decent PSUs, hopefully you can locate one. Look for 80+ Bronze, single 12V rail, and 600W-650W which will power your current setup well.

The XFX PSU seems to meet the specs Dakka. I have had no experience with the brand. Certainly would/should be better than your current one. The XFX does have up to 53A on the 12V.
