Hey guys. Having issues with my desk top. I'm having long load times and some issues with my graphics card after it's been running a little while.

Running windows 10 graphics card is a GTX 1060

@Seed,
How much memory do you have and what is your power supply rated for? That card requires a 400W power supply.

@Seed,
Did you recently change anything? Is this a custom build or did you buy it in its current configuration? One easy thing to check, make sure the fans are running and the air paths are clean. It could be something is overheating.

@Seed,
What motherboard did you use? Does it have onboard graphics? If it does, verify that you have the onboard graphics turned off and the card is being used.

@engineer,
I did that when we built the computer. Turned off the motherboard graphics and made sure it was running the video card graphics. could updating the drivers revert this?

Despite being new, I bet you got some faulty RAM memory. Even one bad stick of RAM would throw the whole thing off.

@Seed,
It could be an intermittent problem with the RAM chips?

I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. seemed to have worked for now. Fingers are crossed that it isn't a RAM issue!
