    Look at the AMD's website. Do you by any chance have a spare card to test with?

    Do you mean another working videocard? I thought I had one, I will look when I am at home. I'll keep you updated.

    Yes, that's what I meant. I'm using AMD's videocard and I rarely have crashes, like once in two months or even rarer.

    That's rear, after restarting the pc it worked fine again. There's something bad but I don't know the cause exactly, hardware or software problem. I will test it for couple of hours playing, than we'll see further.

    Could the problem be the Vertex 4 SSD, because I discovered that when I'm installing a game, I also get the same flickering screens by using Netflix, during typing, go to maps (using windows), the mousecursor etc, this all happens during installing game.

    Test it with SSD life. They are known to cause trouble.

    Please do the test with CrystalDiskInfo, CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD. Do it only once.
