So I won a 290x in a contest but it keeps crashing.
I'll be in firefox looking around the net and all of a sudden everything freezes up, you can't close anything, it will say "not responding". This also occurs when I'm in steam and just looking around for games.
My specs are
CPU = 6x core bulldozer core
16 gigs of ram
290x amd card
600w pc power and cooling psu
asus m5a97 EVO motherboard
OCZ (crooks) Revo 3 Pci-e SSD as my sole hard drive
I just did a clean format with Windows 7 64bit, I've got all the patches, latest drivers, nothing is overclocked.
I honestly wonder if its a motherboard compatibility issue doing this?
