GPU Fails after short period,runs fine,without gaming


Dec 17, 2012
i have a Nvidia 9800 GT GPU it has been crashing and has become quite warm also,it keeps crashing my games after about 5min. My power supply is 500w, top output is 432w is this enough power,my onboard GPU does not crash the games at all,some said i need more power ,thats why the card is heating up,so what do i need 550w ,i can't see that little of a difference would make it right,let me know what i need here ,confused,new card or power?thanks dave :( :??:
okay so your video card is overheating..first thing to do is to get some software such as msi afterburner and change the fan settings to higher settings, your power supply is fine. the card is unstable because of temps and not because you dont have enough power
