So I just bought a new PC.

It is basicly this one: click here is the 3rd one availalbe the 8320)

  • my GPU that is a AMD Radeon R9 290.

PC likes to crash when I start gaming also when I run heavier stuff it just crashes.

Now it stopped working, I can't turn it on unless I go into Safe Mode.

My friend tells me that 550W is not enough for this PC + GPU, might that be the case?

Tried all different Drivers, the latest one, a few versions back and even the BETA Drivers and the result is the same.

I had to get MSI afterburner and lower the Memory and Voltage of the GPU and it now it seems to work however my card is very slow now sadly. I guess I need a new PSU.
