is not a real "heavy hitter" and is known to not work well with newer games. Many don't have issues with older games but newer ones will cause this. It is a cheaper upgrade but I wouldn't expect to run anything spectacular on it. This is my opinion of the card but if anyone else has any info they can share but I think it's the card.
My computer shuts down every single time i try to play video games such as World of warcraft counterstrike call of duty ect. At first i thought it might be internet related so i tryed games that didnt involve internet connection still shut down so i think it might be my video card
but then i thought about a virus so i did a scan nothing showed up. changed harddrives just as a check still same result it cant be overheating though because i have 3 fans on it and i took the side casing off also it still shuts down. And it cant be power because i opend the side left of the cover and unplugged all of the fans except my cpu fan got the same result. Please tell me if you have a slolution here are my specs.
ATI Raedeon 9250
3ghz procer pentium 4
512 of ddr226
internet connection speed is 1.5mbps
please give me a solution it has been like this for quite some time.
