  1. And what are the temperatures?
  2. Those are 2 very power hungry chips. Is possible the PSU has reached its limit. I would test the PC without the video card and see how it fairs. Run the same video that you tried earlier, and if you can the same games.

    Hi,

    Check the compatibility and update the drivers, and also scan for virus, and I recommend to do a casual service your pc.
