    I used to have that problem...when I was running my 9800 "pro" on stock cooler. The card just got too hot and after a while it froze. VGA Silencer Rev.3 fixed my problems. What kind of cooling do you have on your card?

    the cooler is okay.. your card isnt running too hot.. but something is causing your system to crash when under load.. it dosnt have to be grfx card related..

    cpu/memory or any part of your system could cause the same symptoms.. dont just think grfx card..

    i was told because of the RAM, and right now i just changed to 2 gigs so i dont know if i may be experiencing it again.
