For some reason out of no wear my computer has begun to crash to a blue screen and restart when I try to play games. Yet when I reconfigure to run in windowed mode it doesn't matter. I just don't understand :(  is it a problem with my card? I know my GPUs arent over heating because the temps are around 40C when this happens....

I updated my drivers just to be sure it wasn't a problem with that too.

video frame buffer overflow...Ram faulty or being filled past it's max...

voltage spikes?

Not enough power?

Have you done a malware scan recently?

When did you last clean the pc itself?

My fear is the ram on my video card has gone bad, how would I test that?

My PC is always clean

Idk what voltage spikes are but I doubt that's the issue

Cool, thank you this should help alot with trouble shooting. Some excellent hardware. Particularly the gfx card.

You could remove the card and try the same simple app...If you can run it without a gfx card...If you have another gfx card around...use that in place of the one that is in there now. If the same things happen it is not the gfx card.

Since that PSU(power source unit) has four rails...it is highly unlikely that it would send more voltage then needed to the motherboard at any given point...(voltage spikes)
