I cannot play Directx 10 games please help!!!!!!!

For some reason when launch games in DirectX 10 before I even access the menus it shuts down my pc. This has happened in Bioshock, Stalker, Crysis, and others. No one on the web has heard of this the way it happens to me help if you can. DirectX 9 play pretty good from what I can see.

  1. Which 700W PSU do you have? It's possible the newer games stress your system to the point where the PSU can't continue to provide clean power and the system shuts down.

    What are your idle/load CPU temps?
  2. I do believe it has something to do with it. It is just weird it happens mainly in the menus before it even requires power.
