Unhappy Why does my new rig crash and how to fix it?

I have a new build and I have a Gtx 970 but it crashes at 1440p even 1080p I have only played csgo on it so far and what triggers it is the smoke grenades. However it does work at lower resolution is there anyway i can fix this?

Unfortunately not all graphics cards work with all games. Have you asked in the Steam community forums? The only other things I can suggest is ask the NVidia community or try changing the graphics card. I do realise that the latter suggestion will be expensive.

That card shouldn't have issues with CS go. I'd check that you're running the latest drivers, perhaps do a clean install of them. Also, just to ask, is your power supply large enough for the GPU?

Also try running 3D Mark a few times to give it a good stress test. If this fails, then it's likely you got a bad card and should exchange it. 3DMark 11 - DirectX 11 video card benchmark from Futuremark
