my crysis 2 shuts down my whole pc mid game, and it always seems to be in the same place...

please could someone help me fix this

computer specs :

AMD fx 6200 (over clocked to 4.4 ghz)
Asus sabertooth 990 Fx motherboard
Msi power edition R7770
16gb corsair RAM
550 watt power supply

(i think my power supply is too low, do you think i should buy a more powerful one?)

Well normally I wouldn't think the PSU would be underpowered, but the new AMD cpus draw a TON of power.... and you've overclocked it.....
1. Go to some PSU calculator sites and see what they say:

2. Run prime95 and/or furmark at the same time to see if power consumption is really the problem. Your computer might explode but it would answer the question.

3. Could be overheating, use a program like AIDA 64/gpu-z to monitor your temperatures in-game.

"500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended"

power requirements from AMD's site. u are under or at the bare minimum on power. 700W would be good.

also, AMD/ATI are notoriously weaker than Intel and Nvidia, just sayin...

Nobody doubts that 550 watts is enough for that system. However, it could be that the power supply unit can't even deliver 300 watts ;).

@OP: What the model and brand of your power supply unit? Please read the label!

In the same place it crashes? It could be that your game is corrupted, if its on steam verify the game files by right clicking on the game in your library.
