My new PC is i3-3220 on GA-Z77 mobo, with 3 GPUs (Gigabyte R9 280X), on a 4GB RAM.
I've installed Win7-64bit and use it for mining, open-air.

I dont have much idea about Bitcoin Mining (I hope I got you correct with term Mining) but I have searched on google and found some link which can be useful to diagnose and fix the problem (they might not be exact fix but can provide some information).

Please check following links:
