Hi guys,i have a super bad problem that's been going for at least a year now from time to time and from game to game,not all games make this thing i'm about to explain happen. So i have this GPU,the MSI GTX 760 OC edition,and i ask this here because i don't know what else to check inside my PC,so the problem is like this: Some games when i play simply kill my display,but not my display as in LED,no my whole damn picture on the led,its like my display driver simply dies,and that's just one of the bad parts,i can shutdown my PC only by switching the PSU off,buttons don't work anymore reset or power....My question is,apart from windows,ram,CPU,PSU and Motherboard,could this be a GPU related problem,a driver or game targeted? If it helps there are 3 games that i found to have this problem with: The crew 1,testing The Crew 2 alpha and Destiny 2. Also both cpu and gpu had they'r paste changed every time it felt right. 
 
Specs:
CPU: AMD FX 8350 BLACK Edition
MB: GIGABYTE 970 GAMING F2
PSU:650W Njoy WODEN 80+gold 2 months old
RAM:2x8GB CORSAIR DDR3 1600MHZ 1-2 years old
ssd samsung 850 evo 1-2 years old
hdd seagate barracuda black 1TB(6 years old,not sure if hdd related)although i pretty much install all my games on it
and ofc the GPU (3 years old)

Same thing happening to me when i upgarded my nearly 10yo i7 pc with 1050ti. My 1000W PSU isn't enough to feed my Mainbord and CPU generally wants 1200W for  being 100% effective. And probably PSU making problem so looks like u have the same problem. And yes HDD and SSD just effective on opening maps, starting game, gathering datas  so its just effective on how long will take the loading screen to complete. You can get your PC to local hardware store they may tell you what's the real problem is.

My suggestion is to reinstall the display drivers fresh and reinstall all of those games after you install the drivers. LMK

Xiledgamer,trust me i'm waaay beyond that,i'm 100% sure its not software related

Rinhood i did take it to my local service and the guys put it to hard benchmark tests and the thing never occured....I can't just make them play the games,what if the problem occurs in 5 minutes or 10 hours? Also i'm giving this pc away in a month or so and i will do a fresh windows install on it,and if the problem is still there the only thing remaining for change is the GPU,i'm gifting the pc to a good friend of mine to i will just buy him a new GPU,also he is not a player of those 3 games i stated,but i remember the problem occuring when i was playing Mass Effect Andromeda,but more rare than The Crew. We will both start playing Destiny 2 and he wants to play ME Andromeda so if the problem still happens even after a new windows then i will buy him a new GPU...I'm still pretty sure this problem is game targeted or even GPU targeted since the technology is 5-6 years old and the gpu herself is over 3 years old. i've read on the internet that there are people having this sort of problems on a nvidia series 900 so who knows...

My guess is ram or the PSU

I need some troubleshooting on my rust bucket Geo Metro with 320k miles on it.. Let me go ask a Lamborghini forum for advice.

 

Dost thou even own an Alienware?

I would check to make sure your CPU isn't overheating. You could also check to make sure there are no devices that are going bad.  A shorting item can cause it. Ive seen both cases do the same thing

Morbid,rude,do i have to own a shit premade PC just to ask for help on a forum/site about this things?

Also how do i know if my CPU is overheating,i mean it's an AMD this things reach high temperatures because that's how their made,on a full load situation it goes somewhere between 55-60 C ,but that's normal for my CPU,also how can i test my ram other than testing them one by one,leaving one in the socket and one out,i did that and the problem still occurs,also PSU is new and strong,i really don't think its that...And i will repeat this,its only game targeted,i mean i played games that solicit the PC even higher than The Crew or Destiny 2,i mean take this for example,i'm playng the new Wolfenstein for hours and there's no problem,or Shadow of War. i even played a game that was locked on DX 12,Quantum Break if you know it.

This forum isn't Alienware exclusive PC owners.. I do have one now.. but when I joined I had a HP Pavilion

That's what I was going to ask now.. if you play any other games it doesn't crash?? 

I think you could test ram using windows according to this: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff700221.aspx

 

You could install HWMonitor to check the temps of everything https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

And do some stress tests on CPU and GPU also on RAMs
