Finally just bought STALKER, loaded iy up, watched intro, met shopkeeper turned around and PC shut off.

Thought wtf? and found it would not turn on, no power or anything.

Thought mobo had died (Its a ECS that was given to me) and pulled it from PC.

Decided I might as well put the 7600GT in my MBOX and did so and to my suprise PC would not boot or power on. Pulled card and PC booted.

Now suspicious threw a spare X300 card in system in and MBOX booted.

Now even more suspicious put main system back together and dropped in X300 and PC booted.

Already applied for warranty fix from XFX and waiting to hear back.

Sooo if you ahve a PC that sudenly shuts down and refuses to boot check video card as well as in my case it was keeping PC from booting.

the 8400 and 8500 arent too good, 7600 GT is better besides the DX10 compatiblity
