    i got a prob..i think it might b the video card..buh honestly not sure...every so often ..even sometimes when i press alt + tab the screen goes black like its resetting..and then shows up again..goes black for like a second..and everythings fine again..sometimes text is left in a different line after its placed in another like example:

    typed here still appears here but then goes away
    moved here

    buhh ye..my temps r very cool right now
    cpu 19*C
    sys 1 - 16*C

    Why don't you try unclocking your card? It might not be so NICELY giving better performance.

    ps Don't let the bed bugs bite. :D

    but if it wasn't giving the 'nice' performance lol then would heat not be an issue?..i have 2 fans on the side of the case blowing the cool air in over the vid card cpu and pci slots...and an exhaust fan at the top along with the power supply...could the o/c still be an issue?..

    Rather than asking, just reset the clocks back to default and tell us the result... easy as that

    Yes! The heat is just one bad side effect of OC'ing. There are quite a few more. :)

    Hard to believe the cpu is only running at 66 degrees F.
