Default Games Chain Crashing

my new computer just keeps chain crashing over and over while playing games , game locks up sound keeps going then it eventually just black screens and i have to reboot. At first I thought it was drivers so i got a older version same thing i'm just really confused why this is happening i think it might be my videocard.
Any Suggestions , or anything would be helpful because I have no idea , Thank you

Have you tried running a monitor program of some form (GPU-Z would probably work) to see what your temps / fan speeds are like at idle/load?

You can also try something like EVGA precision to peg your fan speed to 100% and if that makes the problem go away, you know you've got overheating issues on the vid card of some form.

I downloaded GPU-Z ill see what it gets to under a load

I used to have similar lock-up issues, which I eventually traced to the sound driver. Make sure yours is the latest version available.

BCCode: 116 looks like it's vid card driver related (google search), but if it's only happening on a single game, and all other games are fine, I'd suggest you make sure you've got the latest patch(s) for that game and/or check out their support forums.
