Hi guys, I will just go straight to it, because this issue has driven me mad. So, I built my first PC around six months ago, and I have been experiencing the same issue since the very first day I fired the system up. FPS will drop in games and then the screen goes black and freezes for seconds. (However, in some old games the issue is less experienced.) This happens all the time while gaming. In addition, this also happens when watching videos on YouTube. I have tried many things from resetting windows, swapping the ram slots, removing and reinstalling the GPU and reinstalling video drivers. Sometimes I think that my build is not 100% compatible or that there is a hardware issue. Let's start from the parts. Do you guys think that my build has a compatibility issue?

Thanks for your time

Thank you for your reply.

When idle everything looks normal. CPU/RAM usage/temperature looks fine while gaming. However, when the FPS drops, the GPU usage hits 100%, then the screen goes black, freezes for couple of seconds, then resumes and freezes again after 5-10 seconds. I had thought the same about the resolution. I'll test it on my TV and see how it goes.

Thanks for your reply again.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have. I think it's my GPU, cause I tested it on my TV and I experienced the same issue.

Thanks for your reply. I agree. It is most likely a GPU problem, because I tested it on my TV and the issue is still there.
