This may seem a bit odd but my rig has a specific problem when it comes to high end games. I just got the Witcher 3 and I would really love to play it but my rig decides to stop on me whenever I decide to play it. Obviously this game is graphically demanding, but I have the hardware for it I’m sure (aside from my ram).
The issue comes when the game I guess demands a lot from the gpu and then for some reason will black out on me with a short audio loop. However after the short loop, the game audio goes back to normal; I can hear myself interacting perfectly fine with the game but I can’t see anything and my pc doesn’t shut down.

Specs:
Asus z97 k motherboard
NVIDIA EVGA GeForce GTX 970
Intel 4790 3.6 MHz CPU
850 watt power supply
8 gigs of DDR3 RAM

Please help, I’ve done anything and everything I could think of from keeping drivers up to date to increasing fan speed in the BIOS. I am tired of this issue and I can’t figure it out.

Well....looking at your specs, looks like you have enough power, enough processor speed and enough graphics. You do not have enough memory. You need another 8 gigs, at least.

I’ve noticed that but I’ve noticed that this isn’t the only game that this occurs with. Could the RAM actually be the problem?
