My computer has Windows 8 Basic, an Intel i5-3570k OCed at 4.2Ghz, 1000watts powersupply, 2 radeon 7950 graphics cards (crossfire, OCed to 1500Mhz), 16gb DDR3 memory, and a 1TB hard drive. For a while I could play games like DmC, the HL1 and HL2 games, Bioshock Infinite, but ever since I've been playing Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 (which I uninstalled for the following reason) my computer has been freezing 10 minutes into pretty much any game. No BSOD, just a straight-up freeze.

I also play on my tv using HDMI. Trying to experiment and play on my monitor instead just in case it's the fault of the TV.

Have you tried reducing the overclock on your GPU's? I would start by returning them to the stock clocks and then running a benchmark and even play some games. If the problem persists you can start looking at other causes but I had a similar issue when trying to overclock my single 7950 too high without enough stability testing.
