So I got a gaming computer a couple of years ago everything works, surfing the web, watching videos. However, when it comes to playing games, the computer screen goes black and crashes. I've tried fixing it but nothing seems to work. I'm assuming it's the GPU since when I installed the drivers it gave me an error, partially installed error. Any idea what problem could be?

Build:

CASE: Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case
CPU: Intel Pentium CPU G3220 3.00GHz (Dual-Core) LGA 1150
MOBO: MSI Z87 MPower USB 3.0 LGA 1150
GPU: Powercolor Radeon R9 290x
RAM: 8Gb DDR3 1333MHz (2x4gb)
HDD: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 SATA III 500GB 7200 RPM
Power Supply: Corsair AX1200 Modular PSU
