i am planning to buy the ASRock H310M-HDV along with a new CPU/pair of RAMs as replacement for my ancient H61M DS2/Intel I5 3450S/8G DDR3 .

so my question is will the h310m hdv compatible with r9 390? I am currently using an 1st player 600W Pro PSU, received it from my friend, it still new, as he just bought it a few months before he decided to buy a new one. so i replaced my old psu with the one he gave me.

and btw i am having black screen hanging/crash a lot. so probably replacing the whole current build will be last resort for me if all fail.

Here's my card: https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-R939G1-GAMING-8GD
I have seen many people with black screen/crash issue, and btw, i see people on reddit recommend 16.5.2.1/15.11.1, does these drivers as stable as they stated? the latest driver crash my system a lot, i have removed all AMD driver using DDU, and currently using stock windows driver as i am writing this post. i am looking forward to your replies.
-------------------------My current build-------------------------------

Win7 64bit
H61M DS2 rev2.2
Intel Core i5 3450S
RAM 2x4GB DDR3 1333Mhz

Yes, that gfx card is compatible with the ASRock H310M-HDV motherboard. The black screen crashes could be cause by a myriad of reasons. Kinda hard to say from here. Might be faulty RAM, failng gfx card, bad drive, or any other component. Might even be software related. Malware.

I uh.... somehow fixed the black screen issue when messing around with Catalyst settings, for now, it's gone, but temporary or not i don't know yet :D but at least for now, it don't crash anymore, i had the computer running since last night, it almost 24 hours, no crash yet, did a lot of heavy tasks and gaming today, no crash, guess i am lucky? :p Using Windows 7 64bit, last driver for Gigabyte R9 390 8G https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-R939G1-GAMING-8GD#support-dl-driver, version 15.20.1046 for Win 7 64 bit. Still, cod ww2 keep display warning message about driver not supported, but i ignored it anyway :p . The driver is way old but it work, dunno if latest driver would do the same, i don't like AMD Wattman, cant change memory clock lower than 1500. What i did (as i remember): decrease power by 10%, lower memory clock to 1250, set fan speed at 50% ; I'm gonna install latest AMD driver and check wattman settings later to see if i can get it to work like this.
Anyway, thanks for your help.

Update: The Gigabyte G1 R9 burned itself for reason only devil known. Take it to the shop, was given a PCS+ R9 390 as replacement. Uninstalled all old drivers, re-installed AMD Radeon 19.1.1 driver, turned Hardware Acceleration back on in Firefox, default Radeon/Wattman setttings, no crash yet; watch Youtube last night for few hours, not a single black screen/crash occurred. Heavy gaming render the in-game screen with statics (but not menus and buttons/UI) ,restart the game and it was fine, the statics gone. COD WW2 sometimes sound just disappear entirely, yet menu sound still there.
Guess that Gigabyte card was faulty. The PCS+ R9 390 worked like a charm.
