Computer freeze

I recently bought a new graphics card, as well as any I installed a few games to see how it works. However, when i start the "RAGE", "Skyrim", "Assassins creed 2". Game starts and then everything freezes. Graphics is a gtx 460 with the latest drivers.
Other components:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 4000+ 2.10GHZ
2.00 GB
Interesting is that the Rage works some thime than freeze,skyrim won't eaven start and AS2 work about 10min.
I installed all drivers for sound card,lan card...[IMG]http://http://**************/image/ht8ftuqst/[/IMG]

Can you follow my instructions precisely and fill up your system specs completely (including your PSU and it's wattage) using the tutorial i linked to above?

It's important so that we can find out precisely which component is at fault.

Can someone explain to me what should be a condition of conflicts/sharing. In order to know which drivers to install or change. In upper post i posted picture of my current condition of conflict/sharing.
As for Tips on Troubleshooting Game Isueš, I checked more than one item, DirectX has been updated to 11, have special drivers for LAN, video card and sound card. I have a problem with the graphics card because the computer freezes after a major use of it. Can anyone tell me remanded stable drivers for gtx 460?

From looking at your system specs, i can see that you have a very underpowered 300 W PSU.

300 W is not enough to drive a NVIDIA GTX 460 card, It's no wonder your system freezes everytime you try run any games.

I recommend that you replace your PSU with another one that can provide your system with a minimum wattage of 550 - 600 W.

Something like these power supplies perhaps.
