-sometimes the game crash with very disturbing noise from the speakers and i cant do anything except to shut the pc down and when i turn the pc on, it stops working in the gigabyte screen , and sometimes the game crash and a red screen appears with same disturbing noise and then the pc restart by itself and i think it may had given me a BSOD few times but im not sure about that
It could be almost anything with that scenario...hmm.

Btw disconnect any other components like harddrives, dvd, sound card, wifi etc...
That's some decent advise.
Take a look at your motherboard and GPU...see if you can see any bulging or busted capacitors.
I'd say start by removing all extra parts.
1 HDD (boot only)
RAM/PSU/FANS leave as is.
You can do a RAM test using memtest
You can do a HDD test using your OEM's provided software.
(Or you could use UBCD
and do both from one CD. Hiren's Boot Disc
can also do that.)
So...remove the GPU and disconnect any extra HDDs and ODDs and PCI cards.
With all overclocks turned off....
Motherboard BIOS updated to the latest...
And BIOS set to defaults....
Run a prime95 test with HWmonitor
running to monitor temperatures.
If after testing the RAM/HDD/CPU you don't have any issues....proceed to test the GPU.
and monitor temperatures with hwmonitor
Then try 3dmark11
benchmark.Edited by Cancer - 11/25/13 at 9:35am
