I enclose the current specs I have and ask what exactly I need to upgrade that new games like The new courses for me in the middle of a game, even with the basic settings, like GEARS 5 
I want to upgrade only what is necessary so that I can have fun playing with high settings and enjoy quality resolution.

There is nothing to upgrade on your computer other than replacing a video card. If you upgrade to a new mid-level card (something with a budget of 1500 - 2500 NIS), you will definitely see an improvement.

 

All this has nothing to do with the collapse. If you have crashes during games, it's a malfunction in some component you have. Or, the computer overheats.

 

I would start with a brief temp test, using OCCT or HWINFO. If they are OK, you should probably go to a technician.

OcCT

Hey, 

First thanks

I have no idea how to work with these programs, I mean I downloaded and ran and still it does not really mean much to me

Is there anything that records logs of computer crashes to see why the screen suddenly turns black and does not turn on only after a restart? This only happens in the new games

  • As for the processor, any processor of your generation that is second hand, will be unprofitable, and in addition, will also not be supported by your (basic) board. Irrelevant.
  • There may be documentation in the Event Logger of , But if you can not work with the OCCT temp graph, then this is probably not the direction. You are definitely welcome to search for this information though.
  • Regarding OCCT, you can search for guides on YouTube.

 

Either way, the point is that there is really no point in upgrading as long as the computer is unstable (or you know that the instability stems from the video card you are upgrading).

Officially you are right, but the discussion opener may in due course unofficially upgrade to the CPUi9 9900 (As I did with the z170-gaming 5 board) If he has the ability and desire to do the mods involved - Link. And before they say it does not work - here is a board similar to his in version eDDR3 עם VRM less good That works with a processor similar to 9900 - Link

so what are we doing ? Upgrade everything and that's it? 

Currently trying to figure out why the computer crashes. Maybe it's the video card? Maybe the CPU? warming? Any component in the motherboard? Power Supply? Memories? Need to check some part.

Then one can talk about replacing a video card to enhance the gaming experience

I tried to do the manual of the registry repair + I lowered all the settings to a minimum but it gets stuck again 5 seconds from the start of the game and the computer freezes 

From what I understood from the post is that the game suddenly loses touch with the video card supposedly crashing or disconnecting or something

 

what could it be ?
