I need some opinions. So it goes like this, yesterday I bought a new graphic card. Currently my specs are I7 processor 3.4 Ghz, 8GB RAM, GTX 970 4GB (my previous graphic card was AMD Radon R9 2GB), win7 Ultimate. After I open games such as GTA V (had it before and it worked) I play for about 15 sec and my ocmputer reboots. Yesterday I also bought Just Cause 3 and after I installed it today, the same thing happened. I play for about 10 sec and my computer restarts. I tried changing Just Cause screen resolution to the lowest and I got to play longer until it crashed. I also set texture quality to low but that didn't help. I also tried to play a few older games such as Ace of Spades and it worked fine (currently I'm installing BF4 to see what happens). I talked to a few guys and they said It's most likely the power supply since I have 650w, but nobody is competely sure. Now I have to decide between 2 things.
Either I buy a new power supply from the guy that installed my graphic card, he said it is most likely the problem but he is not 100% sure and he doesn't have the equipment to test my PC to the fullest. OR I give my PC to a Tech Company that will make sure what the problem is and then install a new power uspply or whatever is causing the problem. Now if I do that I'm going to have to pay a lot more so I want some opinions, if the power supply is the problem I'd rather give it to the first guy and he will have it done in a few days, but I don't want to buy a new supply and then the problems isn't fixed. So what are your opinions? Is it the power supply? Or should I give it to a tech company and let them test it?
Hope I can get some answers, I really wanted to play Just Cause 3 and now I can't even play my previous games...
