Rail power I have no idea. Where do i find that out.
Power is 700w

It's these here.

Gigabyte GTX 560 OC Edition 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini.. | Ebuyer.com


The box it was in was the 460 gtx but the pictures of the card it'self match the 560... which is the one i chose to buy... It came with the 460 driver cd. Maybe thats the issue. Packaging mistake? how likeley is this?

well packing mistakes can happen but ,Im not to sure if you installed display drivers only or features towards that specific card? the 460 If so why not try uninstalling the drivers -reboot /go driver sweep -reboot --then go to Nvidia site get the latest forceware and see if that does it


In some cases something as simple as installing wrong drivers would seem to cause stability issues and if the ram was already working previously and seems to have no errors ? I dont know if you ran test or not just assuming

I would say go for it only thing that can go wrong is you updated to a newer driver also i never use the Disc for the driver i always go straight to the site

BTW the Psu is very good so i doubt that is it

Ok, I'll try that!

EDIT: I've uninstalled the drivers. Used the auto detect and installed the recomended drivers. I'll let this run for a while and see how it goes. Hopefully it's this.

Like i was saying before maybe some other hardware is frozen check the control panel and hardware see if there is a yellow caution

might give you a clue to why it is freezing something is defently not working right check there and also

check the stability of your system using win 7 tools they will help you find errors too

if possible go into bios and put the system into default settings then apply the hardware search might stablize your system enough to do some research on it

welll you can either test the pci -e slot to make sure it is actually running or the card you have simply just doesnt work correctly see if this helps
