Bill is right it could also be a power issue, whats your power unit?

you could try lower resolutions, graphics settings.

hwi monitor is a great free tool for keeping an eye on temps voltages etc.

If there is power insufficiency, dropping the settings won't help and any instability in a system needs addressing, not avoiding, as it can cause all sorts of issues. If it's the PSU it would need swapping out for a more powerful one.

HW Monitor is great but it won't give you any red flags re power and by the time you have a v-droop you won't be able to see it anyway.

How beefy is your PSU? It should be at least 350W.

Alternatively, could the card be on the way out?

Well I reseated the card, and used a different PCI-e power cable..... Played countless games of PUBG today no issue.....Unlike yesterday where it was occuring every game.

We shall see how it goes.....

My light bulbs are more powerful than 350w, for a modern pc you would need at the very least 650w psu
