Unknown Problem

By edi_ml ·
I just build a machine used mainly for games.

Case: Apevia Black X-cruiser
CPU: Intel Core i7 920 quad core
RAM: OCZ 6Gb platinum tri-channel pc12000
Mobo: EVGA X58 LGA 1366
GPU: XFX GTX 260 Black edition
HD WD Velociraptor 10K RPM 300gb
PSU: Ultra x3 1000W
Monitor: Samsung 2053BW 20" LCD (1680x1050)

But i got a problem.

The screen and the sound freezes when ever i play most games. Mostly it freezes in Need For Speed Undercover. I tried everything (ecxept BIOS Flashing) from drivers, to switching the video cards with a friend's 9800. His card worked perfectly one my comp. same with my card on his comp.

What could be the problem?

If it was just a Typo and you mean His card worked perfectly in my computer, and his computer worked perfectly with my Video Card

You have a Chip Set Incompatibility between the M'Board and the Video Card. Sometimes just using a different model of Video Card will cure this but generally you need to use a Different Brand and or Chip Set Type Video Card to cure this problem.
