Hello all of Tomshardware. Its my very first time i'm posting a problem of mine on this wonderful fprum.
I do thank everyone here who i have leant stuff from over the years.

The problem is:

I recently installed a EVGA Geforce Gtx 460 in my rig, installed all latest drivers and so on.

So i ran Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 and i max out the settings. After about 2 minutes of gameplay, it sometimes freezes completely, or shutsdown.

I have no idea what could be the problem.

Rest of my specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit
Kingston 4gb DDR3 Ram
WD 1TB HDD (SATA)
Toshiba 300GB HDD (SATA)
AMD FX 6300 3.5ghz
ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS
Xtech 500Watt PSU with 30 A on the 12v Rail.

I seriously need help and there's no better place to get it than here.

Thanks in advance.

It is hard to tell if it shuts down the computer it can be the PSU cant provide the power needed.

Try to borrow a PSU from someone to test. That is not a trusted PSU. And all the connectors fitted properly ? What are the temps ?

Well i cannot see temps while in gameplay but before i start the games its about 39 degrees. So i thinks\ its not overheating.

Also i would like to know if a Corsair TX 650 would be a good psu for my specs.

Thanks.

Yes that's a solid PSU. And try MSI AfterBurner to check temps while gaming.

Use a good PSU like corsair and then try to play games with a temp monitor running behind .... MSI afterburner is good for that..... more likely that the PSU is not enough when GPU goes max.....
