xfx RX 480 artifacts/flickering when I start playing a game

I just bought and installed the rx 480 8gb (I'm newbie), I had to buy a power supply too, and I have a lot of flickering since the installation of the gpu and the psu (when playing games).

I done almost everything, check the drivers, check the monitor, first I throught it was something related to the gpu heat but it wasn't. Last thing I have to describe its that my PSU its kinda cheap, its a 800 w that it cost me around 50 dlls. Help I have no idea what to do.

Some some low requirement games( Garrys mod, Reign of kings ) don't cause this flickering.

This flickering rarely occurs on desktop.



- I had nvidia gpu before and I uninstalled all nvidia software.

-Also tried a lot AMD drivers, outdated and up-to-date ones.

*It's my cheap PSU? or my GPU is damaged?




CPU: i7-4790S 3.2 GHz

CPU cooler: No idea but it seems to be fine it goes under 80C with the new GPU

GPU: xfx rx 480 de 8gb

Motherboard: Asus H81M-E

Memory: DDR3 12GB (two 6GB sticks)

Storage: HDD 1TB

Power: Pixxo Monster 800 Watts ($50 dlls)






Thank you so much.
