  1. What have you upgraded from? If you were using an AMD card before the upgrade you need to remove all previous drivers and do a fresh install of them, its annoying but if you don't can cause strange issues, other then that cannot think of anything off hand
  2. Is this a new build? Or do you qeplace the gqaphics card

    new build
  5. I had a similar issue with games that use the Nvidia PhysX drivers. Uninstall any drivers that says PhysX or at least disable them in your game's options menu. I had that problem with Metro Last Light and after I disabled the PhysX option everything worked fine and I couldn't even tell a difference in graphics detail.

    Not sure if this is your problem, but it's worth a shot.
  6. Looks like a power supply issue. That Cooler Master unit is garbage, it's a Tier 5 unit which should be replaced immediately. (see: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html)

    Sounds like a case of irregular power delivery to me, if you know someone with a spare power supply that would run your card (and is at least Tier 3 on that list) ask if you can borrow it and try running the system with that, see what happens

    well the fact your PSU is Tier 5 (change immediately) should be at least concerning, if it was me i'd be ordering a new PSU instantly. Even if it turns out to not be the issue, it's better to be safe than sorry

    i believe that is true my psu isn't good and i will change it when there is money because if i wanted to get a recommended psu that will break my budget up and i will have to lower my vga card or something else i will try to change it soon but only i need to know if it runs good or not at the moment

    It's your machine, but just think about this for a minute. When (not if, when) your power supply breaks, it isnt just a case of replacing the power supply. The whole system will most likely be damaged or broken beyond repair. The unstable running of your video card seems to support the fact that your PSU is not running well at all, and if I were you I'd do everything i could to get the PSU replaced immediately.

    Bottom line, safety and reliability both come before performance, and although it's hard to accept, your PSU is a ticking time bomb (in fact all bad PSUs).

    If you're gonna be waiting for 3 months then the safest option would be to simply not use the computer for 3 months. It is simply unsafe for use.

    One thing you could do is contact Cooler Master and tell them what is happening, to see if you can get an RMA, then when the new one comes, sell it and use the money to buy a new PSU, or if you bought it in a storer rather than online, tell them the same and see what they say before going to CM.
