When i run any game it pretty much crashes, freezes, artifacts etc. however I can browse the internet and basically keep the computer on 24/7 aside from that, no other graphics card options until im back home in about a week. its been a long time since i've looked at computer issues and stuff, can the problem be in any other component of the computer? CPU, ram etc?
 
Has this problem always been there, or, did you upgrade something?
What is the make/model of your graphics card and psu?
What is your cpu?
What is your case and cooling setup?

When you game, three things change.
  1. There is a higher demand on the graphics card so if the card is weak or defective it can cause problems,
  2. in a similar vein, a graphics card running hard will demand much more power.
If you have a weak or faulty psu, you can get all sorts of strange problems.
3. Under load, a pc will get much hotter and can crash if thermal limits are breached.

If you're seeing artifacts odds are its the GPU. Potentially it could be the PSU being unable to provide enough power as well.
You should check and make sure your graphics drivers are up to date.

Full system specs needed.
