I was having the same problem on my old gaming system (Mass Effect would keep freezing up and I'd have to CAD my way through it). It ended up being that I had a bad memory stick. Changed it out and everything has been running smooth ever since.

Sorry about this, but I really don't know where else this post would go. I noticed that this article is penned by the "Maximum PC Staff" so I decided to put this comment here.

Just a few comments/questions. I just got the November Issue of MaxPC today. I've really been loving Will's Ed Words lately. I especially liked the one about fanboys, and the one about the extended warranties. Anyway, what's up with the uber fast tracking of monthly issues. Not that I mind or anything, just curious. Doesn't it feel weird to be working on the December issue in September?

Also, is there a better place for me to leave comments like this one?

Whenever I play any games, the game would freeze up.  I even replaced it and still freezes.  I did the step-up program from a GTX 260.  It never freeze on the games like the GTX 275.

 i belive the 275 eats more juice then the 260 so in your case it's probably bad power.

With that age in mind, and no cleaning being done (assumption) airflow may be a big problem about now, def monitor your temps, ATI has a decent fan control system in there driver set, its been a logn time since i used nvidia but make sure that fan is spinning at a decent speed, if the card is dead at this age i would further lose interest in nvidia but i don't think thats the issue hopefully but it is a possibility.

 another option (that i'm surprised you missed) is the GPU could be failing...

another option (that i'm surprised you missed) is the Operating System is a Piece of Crap...

I'm sure you may have noticed by now that all the Spyware and DRM Garbage in Retail Copies of XP-SP3, Vista and Windows 7 are a HELLAVU LOT Slower than those Illegal Copies of XP floating around out there in CyberVille 

If you haven't noticed, your a Fucking Noob

you have no idea wtf you are talking about, so just STFU and don't talk.

retail copy of OS contain spyware? DRM GARBAGE IN OS? Vista and win 7 are slower than illegal copies of XP?

1. they absolutely not true! stop Bullshitting and promoting piracy!

2. what does this have to do with graphical failure? if it came with OS, won't he experience gaming failing right from the start? not like 5 month later?

 

i had the exact same issue, ended up swapping the GPU, and BAM, problem fixed! evga even give me a little upgrade on the RMA, changed from 7600GT to 7900GS

 

If you haven't noticed that you are a fucking noob and asshole, you're a Fucking Noob

Tell me, how does a retail copy of an OS contain spyware?

And I hate to break it to you, but it's the media files that contain DRM, not the OS.

 

And because you seem to be advocating piracy, you can be sure that no one cares about your opinion, because your actions are driving up our costs.

 

Don't post again, it's a waste of pixels.
