So just the day before new years I got a Radeon HD 7950 coming from GTX 275 1.7 gb.

Today while playing black ops 2 my computer froze since that time my computer will not properly boot.

Here is what I did

1) had 14gb of ram , took out 6 (have 8left)
2) unplugged bluray rom for now same thing happens
3) I put my old gtx sometimes it would boot but not always so again same issue



sometimes it will boot after 1st try but usually only after 3 times.

This is a video I made:

My CPU is core i7 930 2.8 ghz
I also have 2 SSD drives and one 7200 rpm
also have Asus Xonar DX soundcard , will also try tomorrow without soundcard for view hours.

This is my PSU:

Another problem I am noticing is that randomly when playing game computer will freeze could this be a reason why?

Also my core i7 temps are just little below 70 when playing games (I have 2 monitors) on second one I see live temperatures.

Once again I apperciate all the help. Thank you!

@popatim would you be kind enough to find me one on - http://microcenter.com/ ? I could just locally go to microcenter.

Thanks!

Last question and I will be all set.

Will this be even better then the one I posted a link from Newegg?

http://microcenter.com/product/406365/Gaming_Series_GS8...

99.99% of the time I buy online but at this point I just don't want to wait rather go locally and even pay tax that happens like never with me.

Thanks again!

Newegg.com has it wrong.

EVGA says the warranty is 3 years for the 120-PB-0750-KR model.

The 120-PG-0750-GR model is the one with the 5 year warranty.

I actually decided no to buy it yet I have to live with the problem for a while I will be having a 15$ gift card from Newegg so I will wait extra 4 days.

I would like to spend a max of 120$ -15$ so that would be like 105$ also I do not care about shipping price because I have ShopRunner from Newegg so that gives me free shipping. Any other recommendations from Newegg?

fyi the same evga power supply in micro center is 160$ which is a crazy price...

EDIT: I found this PSU and it is 50$ which as SUPER SUPER deal anyone tell me if it will be good for me?

NONONO Don't go with a brand like that over Seasonic , Corsair etc. Get that Corsair GS PSU and don't cheap out. If you keep using a cheap PSU then eventually it might short circuit the system or mess it up. That's when you'll have to spend more than a PSU and be crying your eyes when it all goes kaboooom ;)
