I'm not a very experience computer builder but this past summer I put together my own. Specs: GFX - Dual radeon 7870's
Processor - Intel i7 - 3770 3.4
Memory - 24GB
PSU - Corsair 750W
My most recent change has been the graphics and power. Ever since I got dual graphics, ill be playing a game with some friends and my computer will freeze and ill have to hold the power button to turn it off then back on. I tried moving it away from my desk thinking it was overheating but still, same problem. Please help.

Possibly a driver issue, maybe updating all of your drivers will help

Ok, I only said because there might've been a compatibility issue, but they should be fine. Maybe a lack of power is the cause, what Wattage PSU have you got???

Well, I have no clue then ... Potentially just bad hardware, I assume they're still under warranty so just try to get a new pair.
