Hey everyone,


I have been having on and off again issues with my PC just deciding to restart itself at certain points while playing different video games, this started when I got the Radeon RX 580. If I switch back to my old Radeon graphics card (AMD Radeon R9 200 Series) the issue goes away. From looking through several forums it looks like this issue usually comes from PSU not being strong enough, so I wanted to post what I can of my PC specs to see if people think that PSU (or something else) may be the issue or could it be a faulty card itself. ( I am not that computer savvy so sorry if I don't provide enough spec detail)

The power supply I am using is Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 Continuous 1000W & 50 Degree C Power Supply



Here is a link to my PC parts, built a few years ago, 2013 I want to say.


Per that site my PSU should be more than enough, maybe it just needs an update because it's old?



I have updated all drivers, tomorrow my friend is going to do a fresh install and see if it helps.






If more info is needed I can try to get it, not sure what specs are needed.
