Whenever i play GTA IV, it eventually crashes to a blank screen. Several seconds later i lose sound also, and my system indicator lights on my case go off. To clarify, this game was purchased from Steam, and is updated fully. My HD6850 is overclocked to 850mhz/1200mhz (Core/Mem) and i have the latest driver and CCC version.

Halp!

PS: My system is stable, according to Prime95, OCCT and SuperPI.

Is your GPU clock stable? The tests you did are CPU related.

What is the model? A good 500 W power supply will be enough to power your computer.

The power supply you have should run everything fine. Check your GPU clocks to be absolutely sure that they are stable. Set them to the defaults and try running GTA IV. If it emulates the same outcome, then go from there.
