I've recently built my own PC, but whenever i start to play a game, it end up crashing around 20 minutes into it... This happens on every single game i play. Please can somebody help me?!
Also when i am playing a game my PC doesnt perform as it should do, i know this because my old PC performs better than it! I'm sure all of my drivers are up to date and everything. Anyone help, please?
I doubt that the PCI-e version would be much of an issue as they tend to be very backward compatible.
The crashing to me sounds like a driver problem. I've had that problem for a short time until recently when I did a complete clean re-install of my graphic drivers.
As for the performance issue, I'm not too sure because your system should handle things fine given you don't push every graphical setting too high.
I have dona all that you have told me t oto before hand, forgot to put that in. I have recently fixed the problem I just switched out my RAM for some old RAM i had, wasn't compatible with my processor or something.
