this week has been nothing but problems. the video card has been fine untill this month, well so far im just useing the onboard(which sucks) just to see if it will restart it self like it has been doing if it doesnt then i know my problem is my video card(which i hope its not). and while useing the onboard video its been much fast games boot up faster. so i think my main problem is my v card.
