Sorry for the late reply, I opened up the case and saw the sticker, so I took a picture :>

That blue screen came today randomly, I think the problem I have is anything BUT a Hard drive failure/corrupt files, I have done a SFC and everything was fine.

If my math is correct that PSU is 300W.
Not to mention that it has two 12V rails one with 10A and the other with 13A, which make things even more trickier as to what to plug into which.
Regardless of the BSOD and fact that the GPU is overheating with regards to the PSU calc you posted
this PSU has to go (even if it was brand new).

So if I'm correct, if I buy a brand new Graphics card, the PSU will be stop overheating?

No, that PSU is woefully inadequate. My recommendation is that you replace the PSU for a unit rated at 500W or above. A single 12V rail will also help.

Sorry what ?

The situation is as so;
Your GPU is overheating (badly). Probably bad overall airflow inside a small case + dust buildup overtime.

Your PSU is insufficient to keep up with the demands of your overall system, by the look of things
it looks like an OEM PC with a non-standard form factor which will make replacing nearly impossible.

These two are not directly related, replacing the PSU / GPU will not solve the GPU overheating
if no fresh air is circulating through case (preferably front to back).

Replacing the PSU with something of preferably a single 12V rail with 30A+.

Am I missing something?

Okay! So I opened up the case, and much to my surprise it was rather really dusty ( considering I cleaned it with a air spray a year ago, but now I will clean the case every month or 2) Hopefully this will solve it?

Second, you say that replacing the PSU is impossible D: ? Also, it is pretty cramped inside, I saw 3 vents, One on the side of the case, with a large fan, I don't know the exact size, but I think that is to cool the......no idea...., 2 on the back, one on top of the other, the one on the top is the PSU, and the one on the bottom, nothing is connected to it, I mean it works and all, but I think it's just there, to better the air circulation. I don't know ;_;
I'm completely lost on this, I'm really sorry if I'm making you explain this to a 5 year old. So is there anything you can recommend to me as what I should do?

Your GPU may be overheating due to the poor PSU. It's trying to run on less power than required and failing. If you continue with that PSU you run the risk of burning out some components.

Alright, I guess I'll look a better PSU and stop the gaming for now.

Have a PSU that is of 750 watts capacity at least. Your recommended supply is 539 watts, and we need to leave some spare capacity there.

And, dismantle the computer. Clean the inside carefully. Clean all the the air vents, fan grills ... so that it can blow the hot air out effectively. You have to clean the GPU fans too, but without breaking the blades.

When re-seating, apply new thermal paste to the CPU.



Inform us only after all those are done. Before doing those, no further troubleshooting will work there for you.

Clean the entire PC.
What I meant by replacing the PSU could prove impossible is because it doesn't look to be of standard size
so finding a replacement of that form factor is limited availability if any.
