Hi all. I bought en EQ 256mb Fx5600 the other day and installed it yesterday. I downloaded the latest driver and all, and it seemed to fit fine (my motherboard supports it, its an asus a7v8x). Thing is that i run Warcraft frozen throne and after playing a bit, lines start to appear that are clearly wrong, then they get worse. Afterward either the program crashes or it ges unwatchable, i dont know what could be the problem.

It is definitely overheating.
Check your video card ,fan working? Does it even have one?
Does your case have enough cooling fans?
My fx5200 had no problem until I upgraded my processor.
When my processor started to push my card more my card proved to be undercooled with the factory fan.
I got silver thermal paste and replaced the stock thermal grease with it. Take the fan and heat sink right off the card. Clean the GPU and Heat sink with alocohol, apply thermal compund. Refit. I improved my cooling system in my case with a case fan on back and a pci case fan below. Now my card runs fine and is even safely overclockable.
You may need to upgrade your powersupply if you add 2 fans in your case like I did.GOod luck.
