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      -Also tried a lot AMD drivers, outdated and up-to-date ones.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