Specs: Windows 7, AMDFX-8320 FX-Series 8-Core / 16 gigs
My custom PC crashes when I start to play a video game that requires lots of GPU and CPU usage. During the crash black and yellow lines come across the screen with a loud clicking noise to follow. I have to do I hard re-boot I can't CTRL + ALT + DEL. Once I re-boot the computer I am greeted with usually pink horizontal lines sometimes yellow or black in vertical columns of 5. When windows loads or tries to load I am left with a black screen. In safe mode the computer starts up fine but the entire screen fills with the pink lines. What's weird is that when I switched monitors the problem did not when I play a lower intensity game such as "League of Legends" the computer runs fine without crash. Only when I launched a higher intensity game the computer crashed.

You didn't provide any specs but my guess is your power supply is too weak.
