Hello everyone, I am not sure this is where I should post this but since it seems to be related exclusively to gaming I thought this is the best place.
So a while back (about two months ago) my PC started crashing while playing a couple games. First it was Battlefield 3 and 4, then gradually moved on to others. It seems my system is fine while doing other tasks such as using the internet or windows explorer, etc, but any sort of game seems to give it issues. My specs are:
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel 3570k quad core 3.4ghz
Games that have caused it to crash include Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Fallout NV, Skyrim, Borderlands 1 and 2, League of Legends, Company of Heroes, Sniper Elite V2, Killing Floor, Left 4 Dead 2, Orcs Must Die, and so on. There are more games but the only one I have noticed seems to fair a great deal better than the other games is Team Fortress 2. It still crashes though it seems very random, where the other games I can count on it crashing within maybe 30 minutes tops.
I feel I should also mention that I've successfully used this setup to play numerous games since I first built it 1.5 years ago and have had little problem since then except with games that are notoriously buggy like Battlefield 3 and 4 or Bethesda games like Fallout and Skyrim.
Any ideas on where to start identifying the problem?
