Hi,

Last couple of weeks my computer has been freezing every now and then, but definitely while I'm playing a game. All my parts are not even a year old, but I suspect it could be a problem with the graphics card seeing as my pc freezes always while playing a game. I formatted and freshly re-installed all software, which didn't help, also upgraded my graphics card drivers, but that didn't seem to help either. Anyone might have any idea as to what's going on here?

Is the graphics card brand new? It sounds like a card problem to me. What kind of games are you trying to play?
