I have an AMD X2 5000 black and I run it at 3.0 constant with no prob. I concur that you may have a heat problem and nothing more. Do you have the RAM OCed? I would think you could get 3.0 easily on that CPU. Could be that the FSB wont go high enough if your multi is locked.

what! but its at stock speeds and the temp stays around 40C. i was guessing it was a crossfire problem cause it crashes right after i log into vista. you might be right merlin cause my mb sets my ram at 1.9v with 5-5-5-18 timings but my ballistix are rated for 2.2v at 4-4-4-12 timings so i set it at that.

You might look at his specs again he is showing a Thermaltake 750W TR2-RX which is plenty. The 5700 are not power hungry like the 5800 are. Now if he were to OC his rig than ya a 800 or more will be the way to go.
Intel core 2 1.86ghz 1 gb ram (I think I'm still on ddr1 and can't put any more ram in because my mobo does not support more/bigger sticks). Bummer! win xp crap graphics card can't do HD anything. Lol. that's enough stats, i'm getting depressed
