ill try to explain my problem as good as i can (english aint my first language)
quite recently i aquired quite a few parts to build a proper gaming pc, also using some old things i had around my house, and for the last 2-3 weeks it has been working fine, it ran farcry 3 on high/ultra settings with 80-120 fps and barely 68ÂșC.
and today after i installed war thunder, the pc just froze, it did not freeze on a certain frame, it disconnected from monitor and kept running, no response with mouse/keyboard.Sound also started looping and stuttering until it eventually stopped.
Atm im writing this with safe mode (with networking available offcorse ;)  )
i think it might be the psu (its a crap one, ill upgrade it soon), but kinda hoping it aint the gpu dying somehow.
already did a virus search with windows security essentials and nothing turned up.
drivers are up to date , using geforce experience

System specs:
Windows 7 64bit home premium
Mobo: gygabyte h87m d3h
Cpu:intel core i5 4670
gpu:asus nvidea geforce gtx 760 (top version)
hdd: 1tb western digital green ( i think its the name)
psu: ISO-450PP 350 Watt ATX POWER SUPPLY
ram.8gb, 2x4gb 1600mhz (dont remember brand)

Yes im am aware that the psu aint powerfull enough, however it has been running fine till now, i was eventually gonna change it to something more powerfull , 600wat or something.
Is it the psu or the gpu?, or neither?

Edit1: i also have not attempted any type of OC
http://www.alientech.pt/product_info.php?manufacturers_... place where i bought my gpu (site is portuguese but all gpu info is in english)

Edit2: tried clean boot, still failed. stuck in black screen now.

your psu got not enough power to handle your system...thats it!

but why fail now?, it has been working well for 3 weeks without crashing and just starts now?
ive used it on some intensive games lately (bf3, bfbc2, far cry 3 ) no problems with fps drops or anything.
i knew it was too weak for it but i was hoping it could buy me some time to get a proper psu.

not disagreeing it is the psu, i was already quite suspicious he was the culprit, but war thunder aint that intensive, but eitherway i was just delaying the inevitable.
