Three to four days ago I bought a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. I installed it and everything seemed to work properly. But now when I play games (AC:unity, Splinter Cell: Black list, COD: Advanced warfare), after a few minutes of playing the game crashes. First my USB devices shut down and then the computer restarts (or I have to reset it).
In Event Viewer I see this critical error, event ID 41 (Kernel-Power):
"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."
So, I believe there is something wrong with my power supply.
This is my PSU's specifications:
These are my graphics card's requirements:
Minimum 600W (with minimum 12V current rating of 42A)
I don't know about PSUs at all. Can anybody please tell me that should I change the PSU or is there a problem with the installation of the the card itself (e.g. power cables or something else)?
My system specifications:
- i7 870 @ 2.93 GHz
- RAM 14 GB DDR3
- Windows 8.1 - x64
- HDD 2 TB + SSD 256
