    So, I built my computer.

    Shuttle AN35 ULTRA board w/nvidia ULTRA 400(400) chipset.
    OS System 512x2 mB DDR400 PC3200 RAM
    AMD XP 2600+
    Nvidia FX5900
    Win XP

    I have the most recent mobo, sound, directx, and video drivers. Anytime I play any 3d game (Homeworld 2, Empires, C&C Generals, etc) it'll crash to desktop within 30 minutes, max. Generals will crash in about 5.

    There are no other problems other then this, it runs smooth. I don't know what the problem is. Please help. :wtc:

    Use your head at least, jesus. It's FAR from overheating. The board temp is 32C. :o

    The mobo is fine, the memory is bad> :(
