Default PC Resets during gaming w/Catalyst 3.0 9500Pro...

PC Resets during gaming w/Catalyst 3.0 9500Pro...

I recently installed a 9500 Pro with Catalyst 3.0 drivers and Directx 9. Evidently, my first installation of the drivers was not complete, as Win2k would act very quirky. I completely removed the 3.0 drivers and re-installed them again. Everything runs smooth now in Windows. However, during gaming (dungeon siege and GTA3), I can be playing for an hour or so and the computer will suddenly reboot. The time it takes for this to happen appears to be random.

My first thought is IRQ problems, but evidently ACPI in Win2k has everything sharing IRQ9 up-front. I will assume that its allocation of addresses behind the scenes is sufficient enough to avoid hardware conflicts. So, I've installed the latest and greatest Hyperion drivers for my chipset, the latest SBlaster Live drivers, and BIOS fixes for my MB. My specs are below. I'm hoping it's not an issue with Directx 9 itself. I really don't want to re-install win2k. If anyone's experienced the same issues with Radeon related drivers and/or cards, your input would help.

Asus A7V motherboard
Athlon 1.0Ghz
1.24G Ram
Sblaster Live Gamer
Radeon 9500Pro
