GPU crash or something like, I have never seen anything like this before tbf

Hey! So, I bought my new GPU in September. Everything worked perfectly fine, no crashes, no overheating, nothing until the last week. Then all of the sudden while I was playing some games, my monitor went black, I could hear the game, people could hear, but I couldn't do anything since my monitor went black So I had to hard reset my PC, and after the reset everything worked just fine. I thought it was a "one time random something", but then it happened again, again, not on the same day, but the next or the other day - It doesn't really matter. After like 4-5 "crashes" still no idea how to call it, I've decided to try some new drivers for my GPU. I've at least tried 3 drivers, (recommended, newest, and another newest, since it got a new driver) nothing has really changed. Then, I've started to try using less power from my PC, what I mean is, no browsing while gaming, Teamspeak3 instead of Discord, and tried to close everything that could use my PC and it seems like it somewhat fixed my problem - I haven't noticed this "crash" YET.

So of course it is not the way I'd like to use my PC, I'd like to use it however I want, use a browser if I feel like that while gaming, get back to Discord etc etc.

PS: After a "crash" my windows sometimes deletes my GPU driver "Sometimes" means: It happened twice after like 15 crashes.

So I'd like to get some kind of help, what could cause this problem?

My setup is:
r5 2600x
Rx 6600
16Gb ram 3200mhz
Zalman ZM 600W power supply - I've been thinking that it could cause all of this. It is the oldest part of my PC.

Hello, yeah looks like power supply problem. Did you check windows event to see the kind of error that occurs?
