I recently revived my old pc. [New] Mobo, CPU, GPU, RAM. [Old] PSU, Tower, HDD.
It runs Assassin's Creed Unity very smoothly but suddenly crashes to a blue screen ":( Pc had encountered a problem and needs to restart."
Question is: Could the old PSU/HDD be causing this? It never crashes during other functions. And AC Unity is the only modern [this gen] game I have to put the machine through its paces. I have Skyrim and I believe it's never crashed while I play Skyrim. I bought the parts based on a "budget gaming pc" site I found, I doubt the problem is that the pc can't handle AC Unity. Cuz... it runs... SO well when it does run. I even played it on min settings just to be sure... still crashed.
NB: Sometimes it crashes after just a few mins of play [5-10] and other times I play for long periods [2-4 hours] before it crashes.
PSU: MicroTouch ATX500W
HDD: 320gb Seagate 7200RPM
