Could have been that your motherboard didn't like your graphics card, or your computer games didn't like the graphics card either. There are some old games out there that don't like the Audigy 2 soundcard from Soundblaster, and liked to crash. Also could have just been that the games didn't like the old graphics drivers you installed from the CD either, or the newest set you installed, too. There's issues like that on occasion.

Might've been that the motherboard didn't like the card. Or it could have been a heating problem. Hard to tell unless you did a step-by-step of taking out parts and testing them. I had to do that before and found out the RAM couldn't handle the heat being put out from the video-card and kept freezing.

Just sounds like your PC didn't like your video-card hardware wise.

Yeah. I figured it was the GFX card. Sounds like the card went "poof" on you. Could have been static electricity, or the card was screwed up being shipped to you, or something. Glad it's working for you.
