So I was just playing world of warcraft, around 10minutes in without my computer restarting. The screen goes black and then the monitor displays a no signal sign. I've checked all the power cords and connections and nothing seems to wrong.
No offense, but your power supply is borderline... useless..
I tried looking for information about them, and i was unable to find any reputable reviews, I even saw the power supplies claim to be 80 plus certified, and read quickly that the manufacterer stamps a generic 80 on the PSU.

I would purchase one that could be able to support the card properly.

When you open up "settings", there is a box there to "start with windows". Check that and you are good to go.

Any power supply that Boast a whooping 850 w 80 + plus certifacation would no way in hell be this cheap

I got my AX850 for 179.00 originaly 200.00 and i know it should atleast cost you 120 +


That Supply probably doesn't put out what it has written and it is probably overheating along with the cards

That makes me feel sorry about myself for being close to spending 159.99 on a 560Watt seasonic 80+ Gold PSU.

Don't feel bad it is what deal i happen to catch at the time and Seasonics are great quality so no need to feel ashamed

I like the fact you stated how much a Quality PSU will cost versus non Quality and mislead information that was seen with the Ops PSU

As Erick and Solarstarshines have posted. A quality 850W power supply should cost a lot more. Mind cost me $190.00
A quality power supply is a must. Their may be other problems with the computer but finding them comes after installing a quality power supply.
