PC Freezes

Broken PC
Okay so basically it's my own fault but I broke my PC, but I'm not sure which component I've broken and need to replace. So basically from moving house, I think the box my computer was packed in must have jolted and broken my graphics card. Now that was my first mistake, so that was that put the graphics card in the bin and was going to buy a new one but never got round to it. Now this was my second mistake, but I continued to use my computer as it was without the graphics card for just simple s
