    That could be a tonne of reasons.

    First things first have you installed the latest drivers for your graphics card?

    Also as im off now check the following:


    Temps of system.

    Memcheck for faulty ram.

    Try benchmarking see if that freezes it if it does it has nothing to do with graphics card.

    Try reappyling thermal paste if temps to high.

    Thats all i can think of right now but its 1 am here soo off to bed!!

    Lecsiy
