I have built my very first computer and have been running into trouble when it comes to trying to play any video games. After about 10 minutes to an hour of play a game (depending on the game) my monitor will go blank. Occasionally when this happens my power button will start flashing. At first I thought it was my graphics card so I switch it out with another on, but the problem continued. Next, I check to see if was over heating but when I tested the temperatures of the GPU and CPU would never go over 40 ºC. At this point I am at my wits end and don't know where to go with this. Either the PCI-E port is bad or the GPU is not getting enough power, but I don't know for sure. Could some one please help me out.
