Well I swapped out the little HP machine w/only 4gb of ram & a AMD dual core processor to my old gaming rig . Q9550 o/c to 3.4 , 8gb memory , GTX 460 & 500w psu , Win 7 64bit . Now whenever I watch CR the pc will freeze up & the audio buzzes . Only holding the power button or turning off the psu would turn it off . No crash codes either . So , figuring it must be the cheapo Rocketfish psu I threw in there I ordered a new 600w evga psu thru Best Buy . Installed it Saturday afternoon & decided to watch some shows . Watched Ninja whatamacallit on Funi first , then switched to CR . Started playing Fairy Tail & then buzz.....lockup . Pc isn't overheating , cpu temps ok , etc ....soooo , I guess I'll throw in one of my spare GTX 470s & see what happens . Even freezes on Gintama now too ...maybe the poor 460 just can't handle 1080p anymore...
