So... my old fraphics card recently failed on me and this made me upgrade.
However, since then I keep getting failures where my video goes and then recovers a few moments later - this always happens when I'm gaming, and usually when there's a lot of action going on.
My gut tells that I need a stronger power supply, but before I go out and spend £100 on something like an XFX Pro Black Edition 750W (which is what I'd get), I would welcome thoughts on any other theories of what it could be / I should check. Is there an easy way to measure wattage use on the current rig?
Intel i5-3750k @3.4ghz
8 gig ram
Radeon R9 270x 4 gig
1 SSD Drive
2 other hard drives
Bunch of stuff plugged into the USB slots, including speakers
All this is powered by a slightly ageing but still very solid Seasonic S12 600W power supply.
So - any thoughts?
