  1. CPU: Intel I5 - 650
    Motherboard: Aspire X3950
    Ram Speed, size and #sticks: 8Gb total, 2 sticks of 4gb Kingston
    GPU: Geforce GTX 560, version 9.18.13.697
    PSU: CoolerMaster 460w
    OS: Windows 7


    Attached is the saved text file from Bluescreenviewer, usually I crash when playing games like TF2. It has never crashed from casual web surfing, and only started about 3 weeks ago. I was playing TF2 for about 4 hours earlier and it either BSODed with said info in the textfile, or froze while my game sounds stuttered.

    I also realize that my psu may be a little underpowered for my current setup, but I can assure you ever since I upgraded my computer, it has not given me any problems.

    Actions taken so far: Chkdsk, disk cleanup, advancedsystemcare cleanup

    Temp while idle: 39c
    Temp while gaming: 65

    Im not too sure what else to add, I'll be back here later when it BSODs. Thanks guys for taking a look!

    Yes, swap out that CoolerMaster power supply, for a better brand

    Okay, I'm considering getting a new one, but why would my PC work properly earlier and only act up now? Also, do you have any brand recommendations for wattage needs?
