Windows 7: Computer 'restart' when playing games on high graphics.

23 May 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Box (64-bit installed) + Service Pack 1

PSU's wise, you don't exactly go CHEAP on those.... - Computer Hardware, Power Supplies, Power Supplies, 701W - 800W

Read the ratings, best to go with one that has a lot of them, but you decide.

I'd go with:
CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply -

I realized I have the TX850, was angry at first, I paid $179 local for mine 3 years ago, I think

It's a critical part that COULD harm the rest, you don't want generic garbage, you wouldn't put a pinto engine in a corvette, right?

WOW 7 year warranty on a PSU, that is way more than expected.

Okay, thanks so much for the help guys! I'll try getting a new power supply unit today and see if it fixes the problem. Read the reviews and liking the Corsair.

I am pretty sure it will cure it, just stick with a decent branded PSU and you will be fine. If you don't plan to add another GPU then you will be fine with a high quality 650watt one.

The cheap ones are real bad, half the time they cannot sustain the rated power or even get close to it.

As I said before, Corsair, Seasonic or Antec are all well respected brands and you won't go wrong with any of them.

Let us know how it goes.

I've had a Corsair hx520 for 4 years now in 2 builds and has NEVER given me any problems.

After 5 months of trying, hopefully this fixes it. I checked walmart and radioshack and they do not carry PSU's (i feel rather stupid for trying). I bought the exact corsair PSU off newegg.

Ain't the first time to that rodeo.....

That should do it for you.
I have an old Vantec 620A that has got to be 4-6 years old, old as dirt - and it's still chugging along fine and as long as I don't put more than 5 HDDs on it I can O/C my 3 cored X3 455 OK. I paid $120 for that PSU that long ago - and it's only 520W continuous and it's still quiet. Money well spent is the power brick that makes or breaks your machines main stability factor.
