Hi, I recently built a PC and am having trouble with my graphics card while playing games such as "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim". Anytime i open the game it will load up fine and all but about 1.5 seconds into the game-play the image will either freeze or the screen will go dark for half a second then come back with a frozen image while the sound can still be heard playing through the speakers(running water). I am using an ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 and the AMD FX-8350 eight-core Black Edition 4.0 GHz unlocked processor, with 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM. Please help!

Common thing to happen with a GPU overclock that is unstable. Have you OC'ed your GPU at all? If so, it might be a little too much.
