I've run into a problem with a computer that was custom built at about a year old. I was playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, when I noticed one area was artifacting pretty bad. I restarted my computer, and now SWTOR won't launch, games like GTA V and Metro 2033 won't launch at all or launch with heavily artifacted menus then crash immediately. In response, I reinstalled my drivers with a clean install, and used canned air to clear out my computer (which had gotten rather dusty).
The cause of the crashes seems to be, without variation, a "LiveKernelEvent", in which Kernel crashes. Is this due to my GPU not getting enough power? Or that my GPU itself is fried out? It seems to be able to run benchmarks, if poorly The FPS on these benchmarks is pathetic (30ish) but the GPU doesn't overheat.
CPU: Intel i5-4690
Motherboard: MSI MS-7918
GPU: MSI Nvidia GTX660
PSU: Coolmax ZX-700
OS: Windows 7 64bit
All the help you can give me is appreciated!
Edit: Upon further testing of games, some seem to have an issue failing with MSVCR110.dll or ERR_GFX_D3D_INIT.
