So I recently purchased parts from newegg (that my friend picked out) and made a new computer with them.
Everything runs great, nice and fast. But. When I go to play games, I can get from 5 to 30 minutes of gameplay, and then it crashes. No blue screen, everything just freezes and I'm forced to hard shut down (or whatever you call it)
All of my drivers are up to date, directx and the shit. My friend's friend, another tech genious, says it might be something with my memory. I know theres a lot of knowledgeable techies on snafu, so I figure I ask here too.
My computer contains:
