Ok guys. I have a BFG 6800GT card that is locking up in games (esp Command and Conquer Generals). I have the latest drivers/game updates. I have AGP fastwirte diabled in bios. I called BFG who suggested it might be a IRQ sharing problem as I am running XP. My VC has its IRQ at 16 and is sharing with my Gigabit ethernet controller built into motherboard. Could this be the issue?? Has anyone had lockup problems wiht this card?? I recently installed XP, so it is fresh with no crap on it. I am stumped and frustrated and would really appreciate some help.

The IRQ thing is probably BS. Just try the card in another system if you can and call them back if it still freezes. What temperature is the GPU core running at?
