My computer freezes up when I am running any media program, from watching twitch, to running terraria. None of these programs are extremely intensive for my gpu/cpu.

I have a fan installed, keeping all the temperatures down, (well under their max temp... Approx 70%) But the power supply is low end, and I will replace it very soon.
But it can accomodate the system quite well, and has been for a long while. Its quite old.
When it crashes, the sound cuts out and my key-strokes are not recieved. But the screen stays intact. Just frozen.
Thank you for your theoretical help,
