    All updated to the latest W10 (19042.928). I dont know if this should go in the BSOD section or here, as this involves the GPU (GeForce GT 240). This has happened twice now, yesterday and today (as of posting this), and Im now worried about the condition of my 240 (picked up on the 27th to finish the build) Bluescreenview reports the DirectX graphics kernel, dxgmms, and the Nvidia driver (updated to 342.1 as its the last version to support this specific card). - - - Updated - - - Oh, and Im aware Tesla 2.0 cards arent actually supported on 10, but Nvidias website says 342.01 (the driver I have) supports 10. Should I roll back to 342.00 (only has 8, 7 and Vista support), try and exchange the card (picked it up from brick and mortar) or refrain from heavy gaming until I can get a newer GPU (restricting its use to a temporary display adapter)? (The next-best GPU is an RX 580 and a 1060, or a 750 Ti, and theyre severely marked up...)

    The gt 240 is not suitable for modern games,the start point is now around the 900+ series.
    Also the psu with a nominal 550w is marginal,for modern gaming purposes then a minimum of 750w is a more beneficial option.
    Brunei is not the only country where pricing has gone mad,thanks to Wuflu.

    Does a GT 240 (vintage 2009) meet the graphics requirements of the game you're running, at 1920 X 1080? It's a rather weak card, by current standards, and it has only 1GB of VRAM.

    I wonder what kind of used market is available where you are? eBay in the USA has a number of old cards that are superior to the GT 240, at prices that are more tolerable than those of the last generation or two. (I have an old Radeon HD 7970, for example. It's worth maybe $50 currently. I believe that AMD's latest drivers support it.)
