You probably wiggled something lose in transit. My guess might be the cpu fan.

@Marios Andreou: The beginning split is how literally every single MOBA in existence plats (from Original DotA, LoL, DotA2 to name the most popular). If keeping together for the early game made sense people would do that. Once everyone is leveled up THEN the true teamplay begins.

@Marios Andreou: Sounds like you don't like Mobas. That would fall more into a "good but not your thing" game than a "bad game.

Gary's Mod I never saw the appeal of, but I'm not into sandboxes with no sense of direction outside of Minecraft.

@Met Silverwolf: I've seen enough people who've found that switching to a different electrical outlet in the same house fixed their PC issues to rule out the possibility of "dirty" electricity.

Aren't PC problems fun?
Damn near every component in a PC can cause a BSOD and you can easily end up with another entire PC worth of parts trying to isolate the issue.

@Teruo Hirai: Ugh. J2K. No thanks. I'll just use Steam Input. Works great, supports shift buttons, etc. Big Picture mode isn't a big power sink.

I have it set up for MechWarrior Online with my Steam Controller using a mix of KB and pad controls, and it is glorious.

Because it BSOD'd twice? You give up too easy. I BSOD once a week now. I'd reinstall Windows and start from scratch again, but I have five Steam libraries that I'd have to ask for access to again.

Oh, you already had the new computer. That's fine then.

Tip for using a joystick on pc: there is a program called Joytokey and it basically let you assign keyboard keys to joystick buttons so even if your game doesn’t support a joystick you can still use one.

@Marios Andreou: I played League back in the day. Tell me, what is it that the "game takes you away from your team"? Because seriously, I don't get what you mean by that.

@Marios Andreou: You were told that, sure, but again, the X360 or Xbox One are the controllers that work with all games. A crappy 3rd party one not necessarily will be supported. Steam tries its best to support as many as possible, but some chinese crap can be off the radar for them.

@Marios Andreou: Long loading times? That's your PCs fault, for me GMod loads fast. Respawn times are a problem? You either joined a game already in progress and it's a long one, or you suck, like seriously, why is respawn time even a problem? All depends on the game mode...

@Marios Andreou: What game doesn't have thing discouraging teamwork or focusing objective? Have you ever played a Battlefield or CoD game where 90% of players just kill each other without even noticing objectives or sticking together?

@Marios Andreou: GMod online is great "IF YOU ARE INTO THIS KIND OF THING". The game itself is a sandbox, all the modes available online? Those are community made. To know how to play them google them first. GMod in itself is just a sandbox, nothing more.

@Marios Andreou: Either the spartan gear you bought is for PS3 and not PC or you have one with issues because from what I google up it should work. As for lowering setting not boosting FPS or lowering it either you had VSync enabled, or it was this specific game's fault for bad optimisation.

@Jo Pereira: Ooooh, alright then. I remembered you wrote something about getting a new PC quite a while ago and I thought it's that one that broke.

@Marios Andreou: Those 2 games are great games... If you are into this kind of game. That's as if trying to sell Zelda telling someone it's a great game when they hate adventure type of games. So that's not their fault, it's you for buying a game without research if you will like it or not.

@Marios Andreou: Controllers are easy if you have an Xbox 360 controller, as that is the defacto standard nowadays. Steam can help however, when you run it in Big Picture mode in settings there are many options for various controllers.

@Marios Andreou: You CAN boost FPS by lowering setting, with VSync disabled and assuming your PC CAN handle the game. If it's too weak then nothing will help. If you have VSync then it's locked to usually 30 or 60 on 'normal' monitors (as it tries to fit so a multiple of FPS fits refresh rate)

@Zygfryd Niewiadomski: To clarify... I had this new PC bought a month ago, I just had not unpacked it because I was about to move and wanted to keep using my old machine until I was settled.

happens when you shift it after being in same place long time. often dry joints in power supply cause problrm after shift; or cards shift, or stress on CPU heatsink causes it to get dry and crack after long time. Worth doing a dust out and reset ccards, and renew heatsink paste

@Marios Andreou: Sounds like you bought a shitty laptop. I have a gaming PC and a rather good laptop that I'm using on the go and I had those in their current configuration for 2 years with not a single problem with them. People didn't tell you lies, you just likely bought crap.

What the hell Jo. The symptoms you are describing directly point to just the HDD dying. Get a new one and install Windows on it. Don't replace a whole PC just because one component died.
2 months ago
If the problem started at the new place however... Could there be some electricity issues tied to this? Then again, I doubt voltage changes from house-to-house in Jo's country. Bigger chances are that some component was damaged during the moving. Or just plain ol' damn Murphy's law.

Sounds like either the RAMs or the VGA gave up. Problem with these freezing-blue screening errors is that there are so many things that can cause them. I recently fought half a week installing a newly built PC because it turned out, it's RAMs were dying one-by-one. It's very annoying
