I bought my new computer:
Asus HD4850 512mb
4gb DDR II 1066
AMD Phenon 9950
Power Supply OCZ 600w

Im having problems with almost all the games crashing to desktop or getting blank/black screen after a few minutes. I install ATI drivers, not the ones from ASUS.

World of Warcraft WOTLK is imposible to play with direct3d. I have to start it in OPENGL.

GTA IV crash to desktop at the beggining

Farcry > black screen after a few minutes.

I will tried Crysis, Farcry2, COD5, and BioShock.

Today I received a new Graphic card after a RMA. I will tried it.

I have a question, My PSU can handle my new system? (see system spec in my profile)

The graphic card will use the same power running games in Direct3d or Opengl?

Are you overclocking, and how old is the psu?

that psu should be more than sufficient.

Non overcloking nothing, All the system is about 3 months old.
I will tried today the new graphic card, the original finish in a RMA.

I dont sure that 600w is ok for my system.

600w is more than enough for that system. My system in my specs doesn't even use 600w under full load.

That doesn't rule out the possibility that the power supply is going bad though...

Your best option is to try and borrow or get another decent PSU and try it on that.

True. Those OCZ units are the 'cream of the crop' to begin with, but it should still be enough for that system (well more than enough) assuming its not defective.

Using onboard video adapter
You would be fine with a 300W. Heck probably even a quality 250W. I say though stick with the Corsair VX450 that way you can add a midrange video card in the future if you wish.

Corsair 400CX or Antec earthwatts 380W would be excellent choices.

Finally, I reinstall OS. XP32 withs SP2.

I only install Chipset, drivers from ATI. Farcry2 about 20 minutes withouth problems. Today I will tried with Assassin Creed & COD5. Then I will tried with WOW. Its all is ok. I will install my Creative USB headset. And if all is ok I will update to SP3.

I found some info about problems with HD4850 of "512mb". Dxdiag & CCC detect it with 1gb. Some games tried to used this 1gb memory and crash. it appear to be the problem with HD4850 & some places of Word of Warcraft (like DALARAN).

Howdy rojidoji! Welcome to TPU!

The only suggestion I have at the moment is to look into an 850W+ power supply.
