I tried playing battlefield 3 on the highest settings on my PC and after a few minutes my 32" Vizio tv goes blue. My computer makes no sounds as if its over heater or running hard, the screen just goes blue and turning the tv off then on doesn't work. I have to restart my computer to get it back to normal again.

My PC specs are:

ASRock 870 Extreme3 motherboard
AMD Phenom II x4 3.2gh processor
6gb of DDR3 RAM
128gb SSD
Radeon HD 6870 1gb
Windows 7 64bit

Also my FPS never goes below 30.

Any ideas?

The standard trouble shooting:
Try a different screen
Try a different cable

I switched my graphics card from my PCIE 2 slot to the PCIE 4 slot and now everything is fine. Is it possible to burn up your PCIE slot from too high of settings?

The only other thing I think it could be is that the grpahics card broke it because my motherboard sits vertically and my graphics card slightly hangs down due to gravity. The bracket for the screws doesnt work well with my case so I can't really hold it firm in place, but I rigged something up for the slot its in now.
