What should I upgrade? Issues with random GPU crashes, tried everythin


Recommended Posts

Here are brief specs currently.

CPU: AMD PHENOM ii X4 955 Black Edition
MOBO: Asus M4A785-M
GPU: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870
RAM: 4gb DDR2

PSU: Corsair CX750M

My Issue is this...
I get the most random crashes all the time while playing games. Lately I am playing GTAV, it also happened playing FFXIV and other titles. The game freezes, screen goes black, the resets and turns on and I get the "Display driver stopped responding..." Pop up bubble.

I have tried EVERYTHING from changing the TDR setting in the registry to overclocking my CPU and underclocking my GPU to no avail. Literally everything thats even remotely an option to try to fix it I've tried. So please I am not looking for "update your drivers/fresh install/etc" responses. I've tried EVERYTHING 500 times over.

Sometimes I'm good and can play for hours, other times I struggle to just get through 5 minutes of a game. I am at my wits end in regards to this. At this point I am looking to upgrade anything that would make this stop and I can fully enjoy gaming.

So the question is what should I upgrade? Currently I have a CPU in mind( http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4_1210_64&item_id=053295 ) , but I don't know if that will fix the problem.. Should I go for a MOBO instead and keep the same CPU? I know my graphics card is fine and dandy for a mid budget rig so...


Anyone have any suggestions? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
