Built my pc not long ago, seemingly no problems playing league of legends for weeks until today my graphics card has crashed in-game. It started happening frequently today to now when it just about crashes every single game, whenever i get into a game. I loaded on the drivers, including those specific to lol, yet it still happens, just loaded into a game the fans went mental and it crashed/screen goes black. Anyone know what could be the fault here or heard of similar? i find it odd that it only started today..only 3 week old gpu..

I can use the pc as normal for all my daily tasks but i haven't really tried anything graphically intensive like league to see if it also crashes it.

gpu- gigabyte geforce 1060

It's unlikely (but possible) to be a faulty GPU.  I would first try completely uninstalling and then reinstalling the graphics driver.

Download MSI kombuster and see if it crashes when it loads. If it does its either GPU or PSU.

Could be overheating, can you take side of case off and direct a small fan's air flow into the case ?

Dosent matter, if bad airflow into case, or loose heatsink, bad manufacture..... all = heat :) Worth a shot anyway, dosent cost anything to try.

Hopefully he plugged the right fan and other power cables into the correct connectors on the motherboard sealed

While it's unlikely, if you have any high-draw components the PSU could be the issue. 450W is not that much above the recommended minimum of 400W for a GTX1060. The GTX1060 draws ~120W under load itself.
