Going from a GTX 750 Ti to an RX 580 is a big leap. What is the make/model/age/wattage of your PSU? Your old PSU may not be able to handle it. Try using your old graphics card — does the system still BSOD?
Im going to run the memory test now, and ill start part swapping tomorrow in the evening.
the whole system is only a year old I just used an old video card from a buddy to save on the cost. I needed a quick and dirty editing machine and had limited funds.
I have a cx600 power supply and my estimated power usage while gaming from here https://outervision.com/b/kF2slb is
Load Wattage:374 W
Recommended PSU Wattage:424 W
I feel this is well within the safe zone. plus none of my BSOD are under load. last one was while typing one of these posts in chrome with nothing else running. it actually hasn't happened while gaming or benchmarking it always seems to be in between.
good thought based on the information I had provided so far. thanks for the reply
