65 degrees is on par with temps for the 5770 under load, at least from my experience.

Your game crash may be connected to your overclock of the card. Last night while playing Dirt 2, I experience a game crash. The only settings I had changed to the video drivers from the previous day's gaming session was that I upped the core and memory frequencies in Overdrive. I set the clocks back to default and had no more problems.

Edit: Also, in my opinion, if you want to overclock your card, I suggest doing it manually. It will take a while longer, but Overdrive seems to set the clocks too high.

you may have to increase the fans on your case.

there's a lot of hot air inside your pc that needs to be blown out.

by the way, your post was quite hard to read - please separate your paragraphs like this.

so you think if i just drop the card back to original settings i can have my cpu running the highest oc'ed speed hmmm i will igive it a shot i mean how much of a difference will i see downing the card verses uping the cpu will it be around the same or will i see a speed boost at all ?

Also, the performance you get is going to depend upon the resolution of your monitor and the "bells and whistles" you have enabled during gameplay. An overclock on the cpu may help a bit, but if you got too much stuff going on in the game with too much eye candy happening, the overclock on the cpu won't help you out at all

fans are not a issue

i have 2 blowing in 2 blowing out 88mm fans

2-88 mm fans on the heatsink

600 watt psu

temps on the cpu 30-32 idle system 26-28 idle

full load cpu 39-42 system 29-30

so heat has nothing to do with it and i feel the fans that are blowing out they blow nothing but cool air out and i have one right in the middle of the mb i also go a little further by cleaning the fans once every 2 weeks

► Back off the card overclock / retain the 3.4 CPU overclock

If it still crashes - the CPU OC is not stable.

If it doesn't crash, then the card clocks are probably too high for the cards stock voltage.

Another possibility is that your PSU is out of spec and is not providing enough amps for both both CPU and GPU OC.

Some users have reported that instead of 23 amps on the 12v rail, it's only dishing out 18 amps.

Is this your PSU?

Well smarty i tryed what you were telling me keeping the 3.4 and bringing the card back to the normal values

well in any case i actually left it idle with the game screen on and fell asleep lol anyway when i woke i noticed the log on screen and i figured it crashed

so here i go waiting to see soulutions box because windows recovered from a major crash so i assume once again my card failed me even on normal values

I also didn't mention my card was repackaged return still was over 200.00 bucks at the time though think that has something to do with it or is it just my 2.8 oc'ed to 3.4 can't handle the response time neded to keep everything going well ?

I can always go a step further and upgrade the mb and go with a new higher cpu but then i would be a waste of 8 gigs ddr2 ram I am also searching for a board that can dual ddr2 /ddr3 ram that way i can still use my 8 gigs of ddr2 without buying new ram

please if you know of any AM3 socket boards dual ram types ddr2/ddr3 and crossfire ready and must be quadcore or 6 core ready send me links also im sorry if im asking to much of you guys but your the only people i can ask and trust thus you know how delicate the situation is
