A month ago, I started having random freezes while I was playing League of Legends. After a while, I switched to my integrated graphics so I could at least play the game, later that month I decided to play an old game(AC2) that I knew my pc could handle. The same problem occured to AC2 (stuttering and freezes). All games are stored to my HDD partition and my monitor is connected with vga cable.

PC SPECS:
CPU: Intel i3 4160
GPU: Palit 750 2gb oc edition
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H81m-d2v
SSD: Kingston A400 120gb
HDD: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050
RAM: Corsair vengeance 8gb DDR3
PSU: A generic one

Both are crappy psu's so doesn't say much. can you lend something better? Maybe from a friend or a local shop that can help for a small fee?

Make sure you have the latest bios (yes even on older stems like that some don't have it) and update all drivers for motherboard and gpu. .

Also migth help to clean the pc and put some fresh paste under the cpu cooler.
 
I'm thinking it's either the temps are getting too hot (have you checked them?)

OR this>>>>> PSU: A generic one

It could be that the PSU heats up when you start the game....then gets to hot to output the correct voltages.
 
Temps are fine about 40C.

Well, I didn't have a problem when I was on integrated graphics, so I thought it was the GPU.
Well....the integrated graphics probably don't use as much power as the GPU.....so if the power supply is weak....you might not see it when you are using the integrated graphics.

And that 40C? What is that? The CPU? The GPU? Under load? Idle?
