    lately ive been having alot of trouble with my foxconn mobo, its just freaking out on me, as of late i ran into some video card driver problems, and have had to buy a new card, the first one was an ecs ati radeon card, i just got an asus card, and they thing doesn't want to work....is there anything i can do to correct my problem.

    also, am i stressing out my computer with four optical drives and five hds all running at the same time, i have a p4 3.0 ghz, ht, 800fsb and 1gb of ddr ram behind me, with 5 pci slots, 1 usb 2.0 card, 1 tv tuner,( one by hauppage), 2 motherboard controller cards, one maxtor, the other a promiseultra car, another nic card, and an exhaust blower, all on 400 watts....please help me, these what i think are video card mainly issues, are realy bugging me, im about to buy a new asus mobo, what should i do....

    i tried what yall told me,i removed two hds, and a mother board controller card, but upon going to reformat, i noticed that it wouldn't allow me, for some odd reason its like the reformatting process would start then stop at like 19%, its almost like the disc would stop reading as well...what the hell could this be....if yall can pull anything out of yalls mind of what can be wrong with my comp, ill be happy to try it and provide more info as well...holla back
