Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I just upgraded my video card from a 4870 HD 512mb to a GTX 560 ti and my comp will now shut down completely during gaming. If im not gaming everythign runs fine, it also doesnt happen in all games, only the intensive ones (crysis 2, for example.) and it doesn't happen right away, only after 10-15 mins or so. I was monitoring temps and such and they didnt go above 50c which is more than an acceptable range.
My first thought is that its the PSU, but power consuption is only marginally different between those cards. Also my PSU was designed to run 2 9800GTS's in SLI and has 4 6 pin power connectors just for that reason, Its 600watts also, as far as i know I should not be having this issue with just the single 560..its not a power hungry card.
