    i just bought this card (Sapphire Ati radeon agp 9600xt 256mb ddr2) last month at low yat , when i playing powerful 3D games such as devil may cry 3, it crashed (BOSD) after a few minutes. my desktop spec is

    Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz
    1 x 256MB Infeneon DDR333, 1 x 512MB Twinmos DDR400
    1 x Lite-On 16x DVD-ROM
    40GB 7200rpm harddisk
    Windows XP SP 2
    PSU 350Watt

    is it my PSU watt too low?
    or my gc is overhead?
    i already installed the lastest catalyst software n using latest direct x,
    but the problems still occoured.

    Can anyone help me??

    update windows
    run anti virus, turn off while playing games, run trend micro housecall to double check things
    run anti-spyware programs, smitrem, smitfraudfix, xcleaner, spybot, a2, ad-aware
    run reg and temp file removers, ccleaner and atf cleaner
    update bios, update windows
    turn off all non-ms services and startup items
    switch the memory slots, move ram stick 1 to slot 2, vice versa
    just try those things and see if that sloves your issue
    and also put the stop error code, ie :0x0000007e
    the ultimate fix would be osri, that would fix it no problem
