Video Card Problems?

by Rhuarc / May 3, 2005 7:56 AM PDT

My system specs are:
Asus motherboard
P3 @ 700mhz
512mb pc133 RAM
Asus Sound Card
Samsung cdr/w dvd rom drive
BFG Tech 256mb 8x agp asylum edition video card
Windows XP Pro

The problem is when i go to play some games it freezes when it switches to fullscreen mode. This only happens on most of my games, i have newest video card drivers. Also have newest version of direct x, my agp slot is 2x but the video card is compatible to that. I thought it might be power supply but how do i know for sure?

Thanks for the help

What size is your power supply? what games are you playing? did you forget anything in your components list other than the hd?

I think it's your processor, it can't handle the game when it goes to full-screen it takes my cpu power to run the game.
