PSU for sure, 300 watts is not enough to support that system at full use. I would also run an antivirus/malware scan once the PSU is replaced just to make sure there isn't something else giving you grief.

Based on your specs and a few exaggerated values based on assumption. Power Supply Calculator recommends a 650W PSU.

 

This one should be fine and is at a fair price point.

The PSU above is one I highly recommend - it's in my own personal system and I have never had trouble with it.
