I get this error when I play many games, like Crysis 3, Borderlands 2, CS:GO, but mostly when I play League of Legends.

This problem has been a common occurance for the past year or so. My screen goes black, league crashes, then the "Display Driver has Stopped Responding and has Recovered" error pops up. More recently however, my screen just freezes during a game and i'll have to hard reset my computer.

What are the rest of your system specs?

I had this problem with my 6950 when I first got it. It was generally when I played LoL, and it was the most annoying driver failure ever. I made a post quite awhile ago. Idk how I fixed it.

4 causes:

Insufficent PSU
Overheating video card (or insufficent case ventilation)
Bad drivers
Faulty video card

If you have a branded 650+ W psu i doubt it would be that
If there is no dust buildup then upgrade/downgrade the drivers
If its still causing issues its most likely a faulty video card

Use FURMARK to test the video card

psu looks generic i would replace it for your build even if its not at fault

furmark - "burn in test" and leave it for a few hours

What would you say a good wattage is for my current setup?
and I'll post the furmark results in a bit.

A good 500W would be good for your system.

Emphasis on "good"

So 'good' 500w psu > 'okay' higher psu battery?
And is this really the solution?
