More powerrrr!

Have been having problems with my xfx qick 210 Rx 6500xt. Thought it was the drivers. I went third party. I know, what in the holy sanctity of the pc god's. A couple days later, the video started cutting out again. I racked my brain. Earlier this evening, I thought maybe it's the psu. I go on corsairs? website and calculate the correct wattage. The website regurgitated out it numbers.

 

I had a 500 watt cooler master pos psu, non 80 anything. I read my recommended wattage was 500 to 600 watts. 

 

I borrowed what I could, went to best buy and got an open box evga 750bp 80 plus bronze. Hooked it up and wouldn't you know it, not problems, no crashing, no blue/black screens. 

 

CHECK YOUR POWER SUPPLIES EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING A PROBLEM WITH THE 6000 SERIES RX CARD!!!!!

That is valid with pretty much any system.

Had a 80plus old NOX 650 and I didn't ran the RoG Strix RX480 which ASUS bumped a bit.

Had to put a Corsair Rm650 to run stable when OC'ed

The card actually reaches 180 or more Watts sometimes at peak.

The new psu just blew the mobo. Kind of melon colly, a little malcontent and malfeasant...it's b.s. lol.
