My PC Config:
Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4ghz @ Stock
Corsair xms2 8GB DDR2 800 Mhz ram
Sparkle 550 ti 1gb
2x500gb hdd and 1tb external USB hdd
Corsair VX450 PSU
Usage: Gaming (skyrim/BF3) and 3d applications (maya/3dsmax)
Any graphics intensive games runs but the screen goes black for 1-2 seconds and comes back, and does so repeatedly with artifacts. Happens more promptly in games like mafia 2, bf3. Previously had a XFX GTS 250 and the psu held it pretty well, but this card seems more power hungry The only solution I've found temporarily is to downclock the card using MSI afterburner by about 20%, and that makes all of them run. If it is my PSU that's not enough, then please tell me how much power will I require ? If the PSU is enough, what other problem might be there ?
