Sounds like you might need to clean out and reinstall your GPU drivers.

Do you have a restore point you can go back to before this issue happened? I'd try that first, and if it doesn't work or...

You're not going to run GTA V on PC at 60 FPS at 1080p on a 7870 with Ultra settings. That is probably for mid-high settings.

I've got Dying Light myself. I've messed around with it a bit and it's very cool. It's a lot like Dead Island with a slightly more serious tone to it.

It won't be "20 years" probably only a few more years.

The issue with a PS3 Emulator is that current hardware can't really do it. Emulating is very intensive and takes a lot of resources to do. If...

That's pretty vague.

What is it doing exactly? Is there an error message, does the screen go black, is it a freeze? How do you know it's your GPU that's failing?

The Lenovo IdeaCentre should have an Nvidia GPU and Intel CPU. All the one's I've ever seen have had a GT 240M or 250M and a Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400S CPU. You shouldn't install any ATI drivers.

ESO BETA Final Thoughts.

ESO Beta is over. Much better than last beta due to considerably less lag, but the build was actually buggier. Nothing game breaking, but it's obviously not the final build either.
