    Swap PSU with other one and test it.

    PSU model and brand?
                                             
     
    Test the following (keeping an eye on temps):
    1) Start Prime 95 (small FFTs 8 workers)
     
    If that runs without crashing
     
    2) Stop Prime 95 and start Furmark
    If that runs without crashing
     
    3) start Furmark while running Prime 95
     
     
    I also think it might be the PSU.

    Funnily enough I used to have the exact same error code, Event ID41 and ever since I've replaced my "750W gaming no name brand" PSU with a quality PSU I did never encountered that problem anymore so it may be the PSU fault at the end of the day, but do what the other two wrote above.

    I use a Roccat Kone Pure, and if gave the option again would buy another one in an instant.
     
    Its the most comfortable mouse Ive ever used, and Ive had it for 3 years now. 
     
    @OP, there isnt really a "weak" link in that system lol... The weakest thing I can see is probably the monitor, but really there isnt much to choose. 
    I dont see the point in upgrading RAM, 16GB is fine.

    Get a 1440p screen and a water cooler for the CPU, but otherwise there isn't much more you can do. Damn nice rig

    Literally nothing wrong with the deathadder. It only has a shit reputation due to the larger number of units sold. Roccat is actually complete trash. Having swapped between Logitech to SteelSeries to the Razer Deathadder, there's practically no performance variances. It's more about comfort unless you are looking for more out of a mouse (customizable buttons/macros/adjustable weights/grip types).

    I like your build as is.  The only difference from mine is you hav 2x8 mb Ram I run 4x4 mb sticks.  You could add 2 more 8 mb sticks but 32 mb Ram its not isn't really needed in any games I know of
    You could get a 1080 video card, but again its really not necessary
    You could get another 500 SSD as well it would be nice to have

    Quite similar to my current build (980ti, i7 6700k, 16gb ram). I would say don't worry about upgrading your actual PC components anymore until the 1080Ti comes out (has been leaked to be coming soon). When that comes out, get that, then get yourself a 4k monitor
    That said, it's a very capable rig and more than enough for WoT.
    edit:
    You might want to look at getting yourself one of those Corsair H series liquid coolers. They're pretty awesome.

    IMHO the monitor.  If your build is for hard-core gaming look for a monitor with 1ms response time and at least 120 Hz refresh rate with 144 preferred.  The video card you have will support that higher-end monitor no problem.

    I appreciate all the input everyone!  Thanks again!  Looking forward to seeing what higher end audio actually sounds like since I've never owned any decent headphones.  I'm military, and they just get beat up too much on deployments so I never invested in a set.  These will stay at home though.  Merry Christmas all!

    What headphones would you suggest?  I'm not very knowledgeable in this area.
    Edit:  Just ordered the Modmic and a pair of Grado SR80e Prestige Series Headphones.  Really good reviews on the Grado's, hope they sound just as good as I see in the reviews.

    the SR80's are one of the best sets you can get under $100, good job. heavy on the mids, but that's fine for gaming

    From what I saw on audiophile reviews. You can't go wrong with this.
    https://www.amazon.com/Status-Audio-Closed-Monitor-Headphones/dp/B01BDX1IVW/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1476544075&sr=1-1&keywords=status+cb-1&linkCode=sl1&tag=zeos-20&linkId=f64f73a4857d0d4aa166319e5f5bff28
    and you have enough money left over to get a decent mic.

    I don't know what those are (haven't googled yet) but I bet it's still a million times better option than any "gaming headset".
    And Modmic is superb value for money.
    I personally have AKG Q701 and some cheap Logitech desk mic for now.

    If your aim is to improve with the Leo 1, please post your crew and equipment so we can check those too.
     
    I don't feel like making a long answer, so hopefully this format suits you:
    -Good call on the initial spot, passive enough and good for early damage.
    -You should have sniped through the tree at the IS-7, you dont get that much better angle from the spot you were in and you wouldnt get spotted if they would have pushed somebody up the hill.
    -Load HEAT asap when you're fighting IS-7s and JPEs from that range, you got "lucky" with the 2 pens against the IS-7, but were late to shoot the JPE with HEAT. 
    -Something to consider: Don't just spam rounds at almost impossible shots. Just wait for them to get courage again and punish them then. Just by spamming shots at them, they'll just back off, like the JPE did.
    -Your x25 zoom is useless and made you waste extra seconds on the Scorpion G killshot and miss completely the 2nd shot on the CDC. Just stick with the standard x16, or is it x8?
    -You could have engaged that CDC just by going lower,
    -Seriously , your zoom level is so disctracting.... You "took" the JPE shot cos of your zoom.
    -You should carry few HE shells so you could have 1 shotted that FV4005, and in worst case scenario having to load APCR as the next round. Now you just trusted in RNG, which didnt help you here. Just something to consider.
    I hope you got something out of this....
    ps. Shoutout to @hello_Bang_Bye ! Oh hell, he's permabanned......

    I'd be happy to take you up on that Assassin.  Assuming I'm at the skill level you'd like to see.  Just message me the details, could be fun.

    onlytoughonline got a reaction from lt_lolcat in Would it be worthwhile to upgrade my graphics card?   
    Here is a link to a GPU in your price range that would be a real nice upgrade.  The CPU, while not super high-end, could be overclocked a bit if you needed to stretch the legs on it some.  There are for sure others on here that have some experience with that chip that could give you some advice, but from my experience, GPU bottlenecks are usually the biggest and easiest change you can make to a system and breathe some new life into it.  Not sure what board you're running it on, but I'm sure it should be able to mount that GPU, and MSI is a good manufacturer.  Don't forget to make sure that your power supply can handle the extra workload of a beefier GPU though.

    onlytoughonline reacted to Luna in What happened?   
    Sometimes you just learn something that makes you a better player, without really realizing it. Ie, learning better positioning, better shots, better brawling, etc. Small things gradually build up your overall skill set, and then one day you are magically purple. 
    Or maybe its light tanks. 
    What have you been playing the last 30 days?

    onlytoughonline reacted to tsizzle98 in What happened?   
    I'm definitely not going to claim this happens to everybody, but it happened to me, too.  I was steadily increasing, linearly, at around 1400 WN8 overall.  I hit a moment too, where I started to do much better - and then the increase became more exponential than linear.  Since then, it has begun to...even out for me.  But, I still think the phenomenon you're seeing is like what happened to me.
    I don't think it's that too much out of the ordinary.  But, I certainly wouldn't sit on it.  Keep doing what you're doing.  I wish I hit another "improvement" period in my tanking career.

    All games are winnable.
    The question is whether or not your team will allow you or even wants to win.
