    have you tried lowering your graphic settings? Is the cable to the monitor ok? have you checked its all connected properly?

    Not that good at this sort of thing but it does seem like something major and beyond my knowledge, have you tried posting on a computer forum??

    I'm no expert, but I'd say you have a driver malfunction.

    Yeah I have asked on my local computer forum and they said that I needed the newest driver etc. and it didnt solve the problem..
    Yes I found out that I need to update the BIOS but i don't have an floppy so is there a way to update the BIOS without a floppy ?

    Try putting your colour quality down or up to 16 bit or 32.

    This.

    Might just be overheating, so check the fan is clear of dust and still turns etc. but it looks like the damage to your video card might already have been done.

    Ok.
    Whats the best video that can handle 550W? Got a little discussion in the ChatBox and they said that the new GTX 260 with 55nm would be good..?

    Good on you and unlucky with the problem. Not happened to me at all actually. S71NG3R has a BFG GTX260 so you could ask him about it if it's a good card etc... I remember him saying it's more than twice as good as his old 8800GTS 640MB and thats the card I have atm

    Also search google for reviews of it etc.. and reviews on games for how well it peforms etc.. I was actually interested in a BFG or XFX GTX280 although money is a problem and I think I will wait for either the 280 to come down in price or get a 295 or 285. I also agree with you about what you said regarding Nvidia. I am sticking with them as I have had experience with them so I guess i'm in kind of the same boat.

    The pluspoint about Nvidia is that the 8 series and higher have physics and thats a pluspoint for games. But those AMD/ATi cards are cheapper and sometimes faster

    4870 is faster than a 260GTX

    I'm going for the 9800GTX+ 1024mb version, it's better than the 4850.
    I ordered a 9800GTX+ from my local PC store, so I'll be getting it on monday probably

    No, it's really not.
