first it happened on my ATI X850 so i figure it might be the video card so i upgraded to the ATI X1950XTX but still the same prob so i know it cant be the video card ..i been having this prob for about a week now since i built the computer

It might be your PSU just isnt strong enough to support a 1950 card... I would suggest going and getting at least a 650 watt.. My 7950 wont run off of anything lower than 550 watts, which is why I got a 700 watt PSU.
