So everything in my build has been going fine with now problems. Until recently. Every time i play mount and blade warband, or with fire and sword, after i about 30 min the screen starts to show little red dots everywhere then it starts to artifact. after in artifacts for a few minutes i get blue screened and the computer crashes. ive played much higher demanding games such as fallout new Vegas with no problems. I have reinstalled drivers,s monitored temperatures of CPU and gpu, with no problems.

Im using a Radeon HD 6670

Maybe the card is failing.

Also, when you update drivers, how do you go about updating them? If you don't do it properly, it doesn't always work properly.

Red dots on screen, and artifacts are the worst thing your gpu can be showing...

Make sure it is not overclocked, if it is return to the stock configurations.

Make sure the cooler is working, and that your PSU is good enough to maintain the power that you GPU needs.

If the case is too hot, try adding more coolers for a better airflow, sometimes that helps a lot.

If noone of those works, and you have upgraded your drivers the next solution is repairing it or exchanging it.

1) Update Windows.

2) Update GPU drivers.

3) Update BIOS (don't do unless nothing else works).

4) Update game.

5) Update mobo drivers.

And what are your system specs?
