I have been having some very strange problems as of recently with my new computer. While playing various games (usually fairly demanding games), I experience various crashes and glitches that aren't normal behavior. My computer is custom built from NewEgg and a friend and I assembled it ourselves last August. The specs are as follows:
Intel Quad Core i5-3550 @ 3.30 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB GDDR5
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 SDRAM 1600 16GB (2x8GB)
Antec EarthWatts 750W SLI Crossfire Bronze Certified
So far the following games have crashed:
-Grand Theft Auto IV (didn't actually crash, but it froze for a few seconds and when it resumed playing, the framerate was around 10-15, when it is normally a smooth 60)
-Just Cause 2 (always crashes during the same mission, might be game-related)
-Borderlands 2 (framerate slowly diminishes until it freezes and crashes to desktop)
-Dirt 3 (game froze and flashed pretty colors. required hard reset)
-Far Cry 3 (i'm pretty sure that the intense artifacting is a known issue with the game specifically but thought i should still mention)
I had a friend do a stress test and my GPU failed the stability tests so I got it replaced by EVGA last week. So far, GTAIV and JC2 still have issues. Haven't really tested the others, as the crashes have discouraged me from playing PC games lately.
If anyone could help I would be eternally grateful!
