Windows 7: Why do all my games freeze?

Why do all my games freeze?

Hi, I recently made a PC and decided to load up some games. I first installed Burnout Paradise, started playing it at maxed settings when it froze for a second and then it started up again where it froze from.

I updated the graphics card driver and nothing changed, it always freezes after a few mins for a few seconds.

Could it be a faulty graphics card? or just some settings I need to change?

I have a XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB Graphics Card.

Thanks.

I tested the RAM and they're all fine, no errors.

Are you over clocking your Graphic card ? If so try reverting to the stock setting and see if the problem still happens. If it does get back to us.

Well I had the same card for a week or so and had the same issue and went through pages and pages of how to fix it. After trying every thing mentioned on two Windows 7 forums plus from the manufactures web site I finally changed back to NVIDIA. All the years I only ran NVIDIA and this was my first ATI card I had ever tried.

ATI or NVIDIA

CPU intel i7 920 @ 2.66gHz + Graphics Card Radeon HD 5770 1GB

Nearly the same configuration I had

This may help you I hope so 5770 very slow in games, fine otherwise - ATI - Graphic-Displays
