It kind of explains it in the title, certain games crash, both on steam, origin, and uplay.

I freeze and soundloop and need to hard reboot my system.

Hardware:
GPU - R9 280x Vapor X
CPU - FX-8350
RAM - 10GB
MOBO - 970 Gaming
PSU - Random 850W Bought off Ebay (Sounds bad but use to work fine.)

Games that freeze:
-Rust
-Grand Theft Auto 5
-Grand Theft Auto 4
-Battlefield 3
-Battlefield 4

My PC use to work fine, I have my pc on clean boot, and also reinstalled windows 7 times in the last 2 months in hope to fix the issue.
 
PSU's deteriorate, cheap crap PSU's deteriorate at a faster rate and when they go pop can destroy your whole machine. Seriously don't even boot that PC up until you get a decent PSU otherwise you are playing Russian roulette with your system

You probably have a PSU-shaped object, probably not good for half its label. Such "devices" should generally not be attached to computer components if they will be plugged into an A/C power source at the same time. "Sizzling" may indeed be the next sound your system makes when it crashes.

Yeah, I bought this power supply way before I knew anything about computers for some reason... and then realized how bad of an idea it is to have a homemade PSU in your system...
