Hi,

here is my problem.

Ive decided to build my new pc and bought these components:

- Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2,8ghz Wolfdale,
- Motherboard: GIGABYTE EP45C-DS3 DDR3 2xPCI-e
- 4096 DDR3 Kingston (2x2048),
- Case and power supply eurocase 500w,
- ASUS EAH4850 512DDR3 PCI-e.

It all works nicely until I try to play a game and it tends to last 1-3 minutes and it crashes and it turns off and restarts. Ive already changed the graphics card. The temperatures are alright, ive updated the motherboards BIOS, tried all kinds of drivers and the problem persists. Could anyone help me and tell me what could be the problem?
Is it possible that the problem is that my power supply has a 12x2 and a 2x2 connector and the motherboard a 12x2 and 2x4 connector?

Thanks for any kind of help, clue or whatever Razz

Power supply problems can certainly have that effect.

Yes, I suppose so. Ive read that Eurocase power supplies are terrible, so my mistake at buying such crap. Ill be getting a quality supply tomorrow and hope it will work Razz Thanks for the reply.

The power supplies that come with cases are often not great. This certainly could be the cause of the problem.
