So I have posted this elsewhere to no use in other forums, I figured I would come here and ask.
I recently built the following gaming PC:
Intel i5 4460
Saphire 280x 3 gig 5ddr
2x 4 gig ram
Seagate HDD 1t
Seasonic 520w bronze 80+
I have tried running ARMA 2 and Metro and both games get as far as the menu then the screen freezes. NO black screen or crash, just freezes there. I can still move the cursor and the menu music continues to play unhindered, i just can't select any of the menu options.
I also have binding of Isaac:rebirth which is 2d and it plays fine, no problem running it.
the CPU and GPU don't have time to get up to temp because i can't put any load on them.
the first couple of times i tried arma 2 i would get kicked out of the game and it would say that the GPU had unexoectedly quit working and recovered.
I really would love to get this working, it's my first PC as a graduation present to myself from my wife and I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks!
