Display crashing

Hello All,

I recently built a PC, I am now having problems with playing games on it.
When i open a game, it crashes within about a minute of starting up. (the screen freezes or can not show this resolution, and i get a loud buzzing through the headphones/speakers.
When i play 1080p video, it runs perfectly. I am unsure exactly what the problem is.

Corsair TX 650W V2 PSU
Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz Socket 1155 6MB
Noctua NH-U12P SE
Kingston 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz HyperX Blu Memory Kit CL9 1.5V
Samsung HD204UI Spinpoint F4 2TB Hard Drive SATA 5400RPM 32MB Cache
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
PNY GTX570 1280MB GDDR5 Dual DVI mini HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card
Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 Z68 Socket 1155 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

I am not really sure what to do to solve this issue.

i have tried installed a range of nvidia drivers from 270-295. no difference

I have checked temperatures for the machine and everything there seems alright.

the only thing that kind of stops it crashing is underclocking the graphics card, this will let me play most games however i can still have trouble if it gets too graphicy and i dont really want to do this.

any help would be appreciated,

  1. do you have another graphics card you can try?
  2. I've been having a similar problem with the evga geforce gtx560 card. Maybe its something with the 500 series?

    I can play some of my games like half life 2, oblivion, starcraft 2. When I try to play other games like portal 2 or the darkness 2, the game crashes during startup.

    Does your mb have onboard video? Can you see about running games without the card to isolate if its just the card thats causing the problem?
