Games like The Witcher 3, Far Cry 4, Grid Autosport experience random crashing and some occasional stuttering. I also notice that in most games, foliage or grassy textures flicker when looking around. I am currently running the 15.150.1004. driver. When crashing does occur, the game locks out or turns into a black screen. I am able to Ctrl+Alt+Delete but unable to bring up task manager due to the application not being able to be brought up in front of the game. Crashing occurs randomly at times, I was able to play yesterday with no crashes but experienced 2 crashes today 20 minutes after opening The Witcher 3. This is my first build and i have tested it for around 2 weeks, no previous video cards have been installed. I want to know if this is a driver-related issue or a hardware issue.

 

These are my main components:

x Intel Core i5-4690K

x Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

x Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB

x MSI Z97 GAMING 5

x HyperX Fury

x MSI R9 390

x EVGA 220-GS-0650-V1 80 PLUS GOLD 650
