    comp freezes during games mostly.... happens on desktop as well
    what are the most likely reasons for this?
    (note: it was freezing before with my old vid card, it is still freezing with the new vid card im using)

    specs:
    intel p4-1.6ghz
    msi sis961 motherbaord
    ati sapphire 9600pro advantage vid card
    512mb of ddr pc2700 samsung (i think) ram

    With those specs you should meet the min. requirements for most games so we can rule that out.

    Are all drivers updated? sound, video ......

    Are all your fans working? Defective fans on CPU's and vid cards can cause unwanted freezing/rebooting.

    All windows updates done? Especially directx.

    sounds like a chipset problem. SiS is not known to be a very reliable solution.
