Hi,
I have a problem with my pc that when I am gaming and watching videos on youtube at the same time it occasionally crashes the whole pc. I have a 2 monitor setup and on the monitor where the game is running turns gray or dark green or some solid color like that and on the second monitor the picture just freezes. I can still hear the sound continue without hiccups. Also this crash happens when I play Quake Champions, but I donť need to have anything alse running the game just crashes the pc.

Here are my specs:

Operating System
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
CPU
Intel Core i5 4690 @ 3.50GHz
RAM
16,0GB Dual-Channel DDR3
Motherboard
MSI Z97M-G43(MS-7924)
Graphics
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (EVGA)
PSU
Corsair VS650 650W

All help appreciated :)

It is old about an year or so, I don't think it is temperature related, but here are my temps

CPU
Intel Core i5 4690 @ 3.50GHz 33 °C
Haswell 22nm Technology
Motherboard
MSI Z97M-G43(MS-7924) (SOCKET 0) 36 °C
Graphics
2460G5 (1920x1080@75Hz)
S22D390 (1920x1080@60Hz)
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (EVGA) 62 °C
Storage
931GB Western Digital WDC WD10EZEX-00WN4A0 ATA Device (SATA) 33 °C
74GB Seagate ST980811AS ATA Device (SATA) 29 °C

Do you think that it could be related to the psu, I know it isn't the best quality, but when I did build my pc I thought it will be good :D Well...

Also I thik this could be more suitable option:

While absolutely idle i have 56 °C while gaming I have 70°C, so I don't think that is the issue. I also tried to crank up the fans so my temperatrures were around fifty and it still crashes
 


If the PC works fine until power draw increases then it sounds like a PSU issue.
The Seasonic Focus Plus Gold series are top of the line.
