random crashes during gaming help plz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know my PSU isnt very relable in its power delivery and basicly its crap, but it shouldnt be causing the whole computer to completely crash during games with absolutly no overclock at all. I was hoping there was some other explanations/ posible causes for these crashes other than a bad PSU as i wont be able to purchase a new PSU for a couple of months and i would realy like to be able to play games on my PC until i do get one.
current PSU is an APower AK series 850 watt.

i5 2500K AT STOCK
Zotac GTX 560 Ti 448 core AT STOCK
ASRock Z68 Pro3-M

thanks.

thanks.

It very well can cause issues like that thumb.gif
However, fortunately for you there are other potential causes, one comes to mind is that of GPU drivers. What version of the nvidia drivers are you running?

Oh yes it would. It could also kill other components (mobo, GPU...etc).

There are a lot of good quality PSU's for not a lot of money, like this Capstone:
