Hi, I just built my first computer and I'm having some gaming issues. I tried to play a non-graphic intense game like maplestory, just to test out if my computer could handle the game, but it couldn't. The screen froze unexpectedly with the sounds freezing/looping over and over, which isn't a coincident, because it happened 2 times as of now. I'm really wondering what is bottlenecking my system to be so unstable and is really disappointed on my new computer.
Here are my specs:
CPU: Sandy Bridge 2500K [new]
Mobo: MSI P67A GD 53 (B3) [new]
GPU: Gigabyte SOC GeForce GTX560 Ti [new]
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw Series 4GB DDR3 1600 [new]
HDD: WDC WD5000AAKS-00V1 500GB [used 1 years]
PSU: Corsair 650TX PSU [new]
OS: Vista 64bit [used 2 years]
Monitor Resolution: 1600 x 900 resolution [HP 2009] [Used 2 years]
Side note: When I ran the passmark's performanceTest 7, I got 2138 overall. Not sure if those numbers are good or bad
Sounds like you don't have your ram configured properly. There is no bottleneck and a gaming computer can handle a "non-graphic intense game".
