Recently upgraded my computer in order to be able to play new games but I've been encountering some issues. During gaming and sometimes even during internet browsing my computer screen will completely freeze with not response to any commands. During gaming when it does it, it freezes and makes a weird buzzing noise through the speakers. The rare occasion it happens when browsing it just freezes and doesn't response. I have to hold the power button and let it reboot.
Specs:
AMD Anthlon ™ II X2 250 Processor 3.01 GHz
4Gb RAM
64-bit Windows 7 Professional
NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Video card

The chip idles around 33C and the card is around 61C so i'm skeptical to think it's a heating problem. I have a 480W power supply so I don't know if the problem lies there. Is there anything else I should be testing or looking at in order to solve this problem?

You said you upgraded your PC, what did you do?

Did you fully remove the drivers for the old GPU before you installed the new card? Can you check to see if this problem persists with a different GPU?
