Hi all. My Aurora R3 has been having random crashes in Win 7 64 bit since day one. The crashes seem random and lately have become much more frequent. Crash results in black screen shut off followed by all fans running full speed. Memtest86 comes out fine with no errors. No HD errors that I can detect. all temps never get above 27 to 28 C. nothing is overclocked. When the crash happens I can not restart the PC immediately, even if I unplug, drain power, and reset CMOS. but...if i let it sit for a few hours it will restart. Need some advice on what to troubleshoot next... Thanks for any help!
Cool.   Thanks much for the info.  The places I'd looked incorrectly stated that you needed a 400W.  Off to order a 4650 I go!
Thanks for the tip!   I need to see if my power supply can even handle this.  Doesn't the XFX Radeon HD 4650 require a 400W power supply?   I think the XPS systems shipped with either a 300W ... See more...

Hey all, I have an old 2003 Dell XPS. The Video card (which I'm prett sure is a Radeon 9800 PRO AGP) decided to almost die yesterday. I will eventually pick up a new PC but does anyone have any suggestions on a potential video card to put in to replace this for the short term? The part is listed as 6W523 Card, Graphic, 128MB, 9800 dimension under the service  tag info. I think somthing like the VisionTek Radeon X1650 PRO 512MB AGP or the Diamond X1650AGP256TSB ATI Radeon Viper X1650 Pro 256MB AGP GDDR2 Dual DVI Video Card would work (both of which I can at least find to buy) but I'm not sure. I don't want to spend that much since I'd rather use the money for a new PC.
