I've had my gaming pc for three years now and I dont really know why.

Specs::
AMD FX4100
msi 970a-g46
8gb vengence ram
64gb crucial M4
1tb seagate HDD
500 watt Corsair PSU
MSI twin frozor GTX 560 ti

It just randomly freezes even when just watching videos on YouTube

I have done tests on my SSD, HDD and RAM and they have said that those components are fine so I am starting to think that it might either be my GPU or Mobo.

Any help would be great thanks :)

I would make sure that you have the latest video card drivers installed from NVIDIA.

Define freezing? Are you sure it's not your internet speed being slow? Not trying to insult you just need more information.

Yes its definitely freezing not my Internet Speed, the screen will freeze my cursor will not move when I move my mouse and I cant do anything using my keyboard either. I have to wait a couple of minutes for my computer to un-freeze and then it will do everything I have done using my mouse and keyboard, e.g. pressed ctrl alt delete.

I don't know how I can describe this any better it happens randomly

If this is only an issue with youtube try using a different browser and maybe remove then install flash player again.

Have you tested this on another operating system?

What operating system are you currently running?

When the freezing stops, is there a notification that tells you that your graphics chip-set was unresponsive and has been reset?

Are you running all of your graphical processing through your GTX 560 Ti (Not just gaming)?

Have you noticed this change after installing software that could be reasonably suspicious?

Does your system have dust buildup on the inside?

Is your system inadequately cooled or is it running hotter than it used to?
