I just finished my first computer build less than a week ago and I keep having trouble running the games on my system (like Battlefield Hardline Beta, GC emulations, Rust etc.) and I would like to know if anyone knows why this may be. If need, my hardware includes:
Intel i5 4670 (CPU)
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (CPU fan)
-Gigabyte H87 D3H (MoBo)
-G.Skill Ripjaws X f3-2400c11d-8gxm (RAM)
-Gigabyte R9 280x Windforce (GPU)
-EVGA NEX650G (powersupply).
I've gotten messages after my games crash like "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered" or "DirectX function 'GetDeviceRemovedReason' failed with DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_RESET..." (last one specificly with BFH beta)
I've tried updating the AMD drivers (already up to date), the MoBo drivers (i'm gonna assume it's up to date after dealing with all the @BIOS stuff) and tried updating DirectX (it's at 11 and 3D is at 9.14.10(...)).
So hopefully one of you could find out what I could do for this problem. I understand that it may be the RAM not working with the mother board so correct me if I'm wrong on that or assure my suspicions.
Thanks

EDIT: should have mentioned that I'm using Windows 8.1

Try another card. Try your 280x in another pc. To sort out whether its a card problem or something else in your pc.

I tried it in my brother's computer, which has rather similar parts, and it worked fine. But, I just put it back in my computer and it still can't run games without them crashing

Since the linked article is focused on Windows 7 and Vista, would this still be a solution for Windows 8.1?

This happens for a variety of reasons, from a bad PSU, over heating, drivers and anything that causes a GPU error. I'd check your temps first.

I used CPUID to check it and I tried running PayDay2, which crashed, and the peak temp for the gpu only got to 41 degrees celsius. I did notice that both CPUID and GPU-Z thought that my card was a Radeon HD 7970, when I actually have an R9 280x. I should also note that my computer managed not to freeze so now while I type this on chrome I get a bunch of spontaneous black boxes appearing while I type and scroll.
