Need Help on my PSU

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so here is my problem guys. when ever i put my computer under stress (mostly

games) i get a decent amount of screen tearing and my computer will randomly

freezes up after a couple hours of play. so i was wondering if he could be a

power issue to the cards or just a faulty psu. i have a 800 watt psu, running a

GTX 460 and a GTS 250 dedicated physx. i have two cold cathodes and a fan

controller for 5 fans. two HDD a dvd burner and a blu-ray player. i have put it

through a psu calculator and it says i should be good but im not sure. from what

i hear these symptoms usually are faulty power supples.

First thing you could do is to take the GTS 250 out and see if anything changes. If nothing does, than your PSU should be fine.
