Gmes crash on gtx 690

HI guys. Yesterday I installed a gtx 690 into my pc and now when I play metro 2033 for a while (around 10 minutes) I hear a buzzing sound from my GPU and a minute later the game crashes.
I have all the latest drivers for everything.
PC specs:
i7 2600 3.4 ghz (no OC)
8gb ddr3 ram 1333mhz
850W ARTIC blue PSU
ASUS P8P67 pro motherboard
EVGA gtx 690 Signature (no OC on it as well)
Windows 8 pro 64-bit

I tried reinstalling the graphics drivers but it doesn't help.

  1. too hot?
  2. When you say game crashes... Do you mean the game closes? Or are your drivers crashing and then recovering(image pauses then flashes to black and then comes back)?

    Never over 67 on core 1 and 65 on core 2

    The game crashes to desktop saying that metro 2033 has stopped working.
  5. I doubt that power supply is any good unless someone can tell me differently...

    The power supply that shows when you click it is not the one 1 usethe one I use is this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-QUIET-ARTIC-BLUE-850W-ATX-PSU-8-PIN-SATA-QUAD-RAIL-120mm-FAN-POWER-SUPPLY-/271136623105?pt=UK_Computing_PowerSupplies_EH&hash=item3f21008a01

    Cheap 850W power supply...that's probably the reason
  8. that powrsupply sounds of cheap quality, might be ur issue there, not delivery quality current to ur pc.

    whats ur budget for a new ps?
  9. Hmm I can't find any specs on that PSU showing the 12v rail amps... That normally is a bad thing... so that could very well be your issue... I'll keep looking.
  10. thats a no name brand, i really wouldnt trust it.
  11. K found The PSU specs... it has 4 12v rails each with 34amps (384w)... so theoretically he could run 4 GTX 690's off it IF it could supply consistent power... but it seems to be a cheap build PSU so I doubt it will.
  12. Guys I just noticed that my gpu needs 2 8 pin connector so you need to plug 2 6-pin in each and then plug the 8 pin in the gpu. But my psu has 1 8 pin ready and another 6 pin. So what I did yesterday is that I pluged in the 8 pin from the PSU and I pluged The 6 pin in one of the cables that make 6 pin connectors to 8 pin but I was 1 6 pin short so I used one of the old ones from my 560's and its like a 6 pin without 1 of the pins so its like a 6 pin with 5 pin. and the connector that I pluged it in is also a 6 pin with 5 pins so I end up 1 pin short because its like a 6 pin but with 4 pins not 5 like its supposed to be. Can that be the problem?
  13. Sorry for the nooby explanation. I'm new to building PC's
  14. yordan ur current ps may cause instability in ur system and possibly take it down with it,

    i highly recommand u buy a budget quality ps, whats ur budget?
  15. It could be but the core problem is the fact that psu is probably (I'm pretty certain about this) too weak for your system. Replace it. A Corsair TX650 V2 can handle it and it isn't too expensive
  16. If he had money to buy a GTX 690... He should have enough to get a decent PSU , although the corsair TX650 will be enough it will leave you very little head room to overclock, I would suggest getting at least a corsair TX750.
  17. so whats ur maximum budget in british pounds?ç

    Well I will try to buy a deacent 6-pin connector first but if it doesn't do the job I will change the PSU.
  19. alright just saying a bad quality ps can actually nuke ur whole system, i wouldnt risk it.

    Ok but its safe to use it for now until I get the 6-pin to test it?

    By use it I mean browsing the net and watch a movie nothing more.
  22. Just as iceclock said, I wouldn't risk it as well.
  23. um i wouldnt risk it, unless u wanna lose over 2k in computer parts dude, i shut that pc off right now and think about buying a decent ps, whats ur budget?

    My budjet is preatty tight after the 690 but i can go for 80 pounds at most. And I plugged a 560 for now.

    Nice. Thanks!
  26. no problem, ive got the same powersupply, except its the corsair 850txm :)

    same ps but corsair, same model as the xfx and made by seasonic.

    both based off the http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=218

    got 9.5 outta 10 quite good.

    Yes it is and just another question so I would know when I buy a PSU in the future. My gtx 690 says it needs Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 38 Amps. 38 Amps for a single 12V rail or 38 Amps combined?
  28. hmm, good question i assume 38 overall, and most ps are single rail. so id say 38amps over a 12v rail or 38v over multiple rails witch is rare since most ps use one rail.

    Yes and ow can I know how much rails it has? Can you explain or send a link with info on that or something?

    Hey man will this psu do the job ok like the xfx one? I like it because it has 4x 6+2 pin PCIe cables. It costs a bit more but I prefer to give 90 ponds for a PSU then 700 for a new gtx 690
  31. yes, its the same one, just different name on label.
  32. yeah shur go with that if ud like. thats the original one :D
