Hello there,

I have been searching all over the internet for an answer to this and i read up that this site would probably give me some more help on this topic.

I recently updated my video card and my PSU. Now after i installed them both, everything seemed fine (i can surf the web, watch videos) until i tried to play any game. I could play the game for maybe 40 seconds and then my screen would black out and come back displaying this message. I have also had it freeze up with a screen of grey vertical bars as well.

I have tried several things so far to fix this:

1. i have updated my video card, BIOS, and chipset drivers.

2. i have ran driver sweeper to get rid of any existing data of my old video cards.

3. I have checked the temperatures and voltages of my hardware. [which you can see by checking here: http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt340/liljjbjrx/Stuff/Afteragametemp.jpg ]

I currently have a HP Pavilion Elite m9350f (link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01469329 )

Which i switched out the nvidia GPU for a XFX Radeon HD 6790 (link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150564 )
I also switch out the PSU for a Corsair GS600 series [600W]

So what else could i do to fix this problem? i am running out of ideas here
