Windows 7: Graphic card crashes and resets when playing Watch Dogs-low resolution

Graphic card crashes and resets when playing Watch Dogs-low resolution

When the game starts, I have no problem untill the actual game, when you can move free etc., starts and my graphic card crashes and resets, even if I play on the lowest resolution with all the graphic qualtiy's on very low. Other games that are less graphical can only be played on very low settings or the same problem ocures.
What could be the problem?

My desktop is the one below:
HP Pavilion HPE h8-1309eb
Windows 7 Home Premium

Thanks in advance.

At a guess I'd say your PC isn't up to gaming at all. Fill in your system specs as linked in my signature.

The 7570 isn't really a gaming card to be honest, it's entry range at best. It's probably down to the game being too demanding for the card, check the temperatures when it's under load as heating could be the issue but I doubt it.

Temperature only raises a bit when I play it.
Is there a graphic card that fits my desktop that is good for gaming?

Can you get a photo of the inside of the PC? I'd have to look up the specs of the card and PC to see what would fit.

You'll have trouble fitting a better GPU in there, the newer performance GPUs are quite large. One thing you might try looking at are your CPU temps, that stock cooler won't be doing a very good job of cooling your CPU when it's under load, and aftermarket cooler would be much better. Let us know the temps.

And if I would buy a bigger case, are there parts I could recover, and how much do the parts I have to buy cost?
