yep that's the version i have, and no unfortunately its not


and the reason i didnt want to move the video card from the first slot is because some of the fan cords wont reach around it

Take the side panel off and don't worry about the fans right now... let's get the major issue out of the way... then we'll worry about the minor issue of cable management.

If you have a room fan, you can just point it into the case while we're testing another pci-e slot.

As long as the graphics card fan operates, you can do without the case fans long enought to test a new slot.

after changing the slot, i played for an hour with no crashes. Unfortunately, i have to go to school so well see if it crashes after i get back, but this might have fixed it (its looking up at least)

no i just used the Nvedia auto update, but now that i have the panel off, i rly think its the video card, since the "fan noise"(when computer crashes) that i talked about earlier is the video card... i think im just gonna have to send it in

How attached are you to that card? It's pretty dated, so you would have to weigh the cost of repairing it against the cost of a new card.

Not that getting another GPU heatsink and fan assembly would be expensive, but it would still be pouring money into an outdated card... your best bet would be to just get a new card.
