Hey, looking for some help or insight on a problem I have.

When playing demanding games, my screen goes black after some playtime. Sound still plays but the display is unresponsive. It switches between VGA and HDMI as if there's no input. The only option is to hold down the power button and start the computer again.

GPU and CPU temps and power usage seem normal according to MSI Afterburner before blackout happens.

This happened after upgrading from GTX960 to GTX1060 so could it be a card issue? Or the power socket I plug my computer to?


CPU: Intel i5-4690 @3.5ghz
RAM: 8GB HyperX Fury DDR3
GPU: ASUS GTX1060 OC Edition 6GB
M/B: ASUS H97M-E Motherboard
PSU: FSP Raider 80 Plus Silver 750W
MONITOR: Samsung S24D300

Windows 7 Ultimate

From what you describe, it seems for me unlikely that the cause of the problem can be anything else than the graphic card.

But just for the record - You can always run Memtest just to ensure that there is nothing wrong with the memory.
