Recently i changed from having a i5 6600 to an i7 7700k, and although everything was entirely fine before the change, now I get a lot of video memory errors when i play games and it seems like it can even crash my video car which leads to me having to reboot.
I have no idea what may cause this problem to be as big as it is, on the lowest settings i run out of video memory even though my PC is not quite low-end.
This might be seen as a regular old "pulling too much on GPU, it just runs out of memory : lower game settings/screen resolution" issue but i guess what's bothering me so much is : why is this happening now that I have upgraded CPU when it never did before with otherwise the same setup ?
CPU are expansive man hope i i don't have to go back to the old one and waste 350$.
I've got the rainmeter system widget and it tells me that my SWAP is almost full when i play a 3d game like overwatch (up to 98%), i don't really know what SWAP is though.
My RAM usage usually doesn't go past 80% ever so i don't think that's the issue.
Before crashes windows gives the following warning popup : "Close program to prevent information loss : Your computer is low on memory. Save files and close these programs : [insert game that's about to crash here] "
Edit : spelling
