    Hello, the issue with my PC seems to not be very common or at least I haven't been able to find anyone with the same issue. Basically when I open games and I start playing them, my PC only allows me to play for about 5 minutes. At some point the game crashes and it gets back to the main desktop page. I cannot understand if any of my components are faulty or there is something else going wrong. Help from you guys would be very much appreciated. Here are my PC parts in case you might need them.

    Did you build this system? In the BIOS have you set the GPU to use the PCIe slot as default? Have you disabled the onboard GPU....in this case it's on your CPU?
