    i would look at your gpu and chipset drivers, make sure they're all upto date and if the crashing still happens look at the power supply.

    with that budget it is going to be hard to get much of an upgrade buying new parts but you might be able to find 2nd hand haswell cpu and mobo that fits the bill. an i5 from that gen would give you a boost in all areas and allow you to reuse the ram keeping the cost down.

      Thank you Luke,I did all those,and actually just a few days ago GPU software updated itself. I did the Ram check on windows it came clean,so I really dont know what is happening. I can probably push my budget too 300,350

        Couple of things, did you put a different cooler on the CPU? Can't remember if that was replaced?

        Might be worth checking the temperatures, an overheating CPU would cause a crash or a reset, especially under load.

        Also the PSU at 430W is quite close to the limits on what you'd need to cope with your CPU at full load. If the CPU isn't overheating, I'd recommend at least a 550W/600W PSU to be sure you're not exceeding the power draw.

          if you went the intel route, swapping the mobo and cpu for these parts;

          will cost a little more, give you a slightly more grunt and leave you on a better upgrade path. but imo both of these builds would want a better cpu and really help your image editing needs.

            Hi Omega,thank you very much for replying again,I really appreciate the previous comments too.I bought the cooler you guys mentioned but never got around to fit it,instead I bought 3 120mm fans and attached them to my case.I was suspecting my rams but I did the windows check and they came out fine,I thought maybe it is my GPU but i dont see any reason why it would be.I am just clueless right now.

              Thank you very much Luke,do you think going intel side is better than AMD? You usually hear people talking how good AMD is,how it is actually always better than Intel,so to be honest right from the beginning I was always influenced by these rumours and I always stuck with AMD. So the Intel CPU above is better than what I got,I thought I had a good CPU

                when you got the fx8 it would of been about the best bang per buck cpu but it soon looked old hat as intel just churned out update after update as they refined their core tech.

                in multi threaded stuff i think this intel will offer less performance but in single threaded stuff it will be faster. amd new ryzen based cpu are again the best bang per buck all round cpu but intel still have a slight lead in single threaded stuff. mostly down to their higher clock speeds. the amd cpu is only a quad core but it has more ipc than your fx8, which are looking very long in the tooth in that regard these days.

                that intel platform is about to be replaced by their next latest and greatest, as such the best cpu you will ever get for it will be a 4 core 8 thread one. am4 is amd's brand new platform, it already has 8c 16 thread options out and they will be releasing more cpu for it in the future. that is why it costs a little more as it has more potential life in it.

                right now am4 is the platform to go with i think, but it means stretching your budget a little further. the intel route is a little cheaper, why i started with it as it is as close to your budget as i could get while still offering the hardware you need to do what you want. that being said i think both cpu are little more than place holders and you would get better benefit from upgrading them as soon as you're able to really see the benefit in photoshop and such.

                  personal choice for the colour reproduction, the Dell 27" these (not the freesync 1980 one)

                    Thank you very much for all the help.What would be an ideal budget PC for me then please?I am not looking at the best spec, I am not even looking at second best,something that will last me 2-3 years without any problem,that wont cause me any problem,that wont work slowly on lightroom cc.What do you think I should allocate please?

                      i think the am4 parts listed above with an ssd would fit that bill

                          gpu prices are high right now thanks to the latest mining craze. lightroom can use your gpu to speed things up but for the price you would need to spend to get a noticeable upgrade....an amd 570 or nvidia 1060 would be around where you would want to look but they are not at the best prices right now

                          have you checked to see if that has anything to do with your crashing?

                          only if it is using the gpu when it crashes it would make me think it is the power supply more

                            Hi again

                            I see,maybe iwait a little more for the prices to go down.I bought a new 600w PSU,it has been installed in today,I will see if it makes any difference,if it doesnt I will give you more headache

                                What brand is the PSU?

                                Hopefully it was just a power issue and that's an easy fix

                                Next thing I would check temperatures though, if the PSU doesn't help - before you buy any more stuff
