Recently my new self-built gaming desktop has just been a nightmare to me.
It seems like while playing games my computer will go into a hard freeze, no response what-so-ever.
We have changed out the motherboard, power supply and ram sticks and still to no avail, it freezes.
System Specs are as follows:
Processor: AMD Athlon II X3 450 3x 3.2GHz 1.5MB Cache
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333MHz PC10666 Patriot G2 Series
Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M LX
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX460 1GB
Optical Drive: Dual Layer DVD Burner
Hard Drive: 640GB WD Caviar Black
Networking: TrendNet TEW-643PI N wireless card
Case: Cooler Master : Elite 430 w/ 650w Cooler Master GX Psu
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Any suggestions on what to do next?
On Edit: I wiped the hard drive using Derik's Boot and Nuke to try and be sure it's not a software issue. I installed windows 7, along with all the driver software from all the disks I got from the parts. I installed StarCraft II to try and replicate the problem (it was happening with other games too) and it froze about 5 minutes into a game.
