Default Graphics card problems on a new build

Hey everyone so recently last week I finished building my new computer and everything went well. But I noticed when I was watching a YouTube video that it would stop or mess up a little bit. But what really caught my attention was when I was playing napolean total war it would lag or no flow right and a day ago when I was loading a battle my comp made a loud dun sound and froze. I checked the latest drivers for the card And downloaded them it hasn't crashed since then but still lags when it shouldn't since a brand new card and system. Any suggestion on what I should do?

could be bad ram. Try running memtest.

Try running Prime95 or Orthos, and see if it's stable for more than an hour.

If I had to take a wild guess I would say it's a memory issue, but run some tests to be sure.

Have you used Ccleaner and Malwarebytes lately?

Edit: Yes, memtest as well
