Alright, well here is my dilemma. On a clean install of Windows 7 RTM x64, all my games crash after I have been playing them for like 20 minutes. The two main games I have tried are Call of Duty World At War, and Age of Empires III. The games usually just pretty much lock up, but not the entire system. I can ctl+alt+del and end task to close the games. I have tried the latest 3 different video drivers
released by ATI and it didn't seem to make any difference. I even tried turning on the video card fan to 100% just to rule out a video card heat issue. All these games work flawlessly in Windows Vista x64 on the same system. Here are my system specs:
Windows 7 RTM
XFX ATI Radeon 4870x2 Video Card - stock
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R Motherboard
2x 640gb WD HDDs in Raid 0 on the ICH10R Intel Onboard Raid Controller
8GB DDR2 1066 g.skill memory
Core2 Duo E7200 overclocked @ 3.8ghz
Corsair 650watt PSU
Now don't blame it on the overclocked CPU because Vista / XP, memtest, and prime95 never have any issues, the overclock is 100% stable.
Any suggestions?? This is such a pita because everything else runs great on Windows 7.. just not games! bummer! Help!!
