    So as in the title, I have a GeForce GTX 650 Ti GPU, and when playing games (Especially demanding ones) after some time the game crashes and the CPU just turns off/stops responding sometimes when the games crash they show this error or similar one https://imgur.com/a/m5TBq5N Now things that I checked
    -I have the newest drivers
    -I just changed thermal paste
    -I just cleaned my whole PC
    -I runned FuMark for around 10min, nothing happend
    -Temperature never rises above 50-55C
    My Specs: https://imgur.com/a/GTZeBef

    I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, but the above specs shows one primary reason why your computer can't handle demanding games.

    I concur....you low entry level mobo/cpu/gpu setup.

    You have a few options....one is to run all games in lowest settings. Next would be to optimize you setup with the fastest CPU/GPU and add more RAM. Then thing you would need to consider is whether or not it would be cost effective to upgrade those parts or build a new rig. One setup for gaming.

    Here is a suggested upgrade parts:
    CPU: https://www.newegg.com/intel-core-i7-3rd-gen-core-i7-3770k/p/N82E16819116501\
    RAM: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-240-pin-ddr3-sdram/p/N82E16820231742
    GPU: https://www.newegg.com/evga-geforce-rtx-2070-08g-p4-2172-kr/p/N82E16814487412
    total of $1015.

    Or look at a new mobo/cpu/ram bundle kit and add a GPU for about the same price. Or a full bundle build.

    tried that already, doesn't work

    I've worded my problem badly, GPU turns off in all 3D games, it just does it faster in more demanding games, and even that isn't a rule, for example, I play warframe on minimal specs and constantly have 60-70fps no problem, yet the game crashes after around 20-30mins , and it doesn't even crash in the most graphically intensive moments as you would expect, it seems totally random, on the other hand, I play warthunder on medium-high specs and get around 50fps, but I can play it for hours without anything happening

    Oh belive me, I am thinking about new PC, but I just can't afford it right now
