Since you have an Acer Z35 200hz monitor listed i dont see why you would not want to use that and buy a card that cant play more than a few games with more than 100 FPS
Couple of reasons:
- I don't play as much as I used too and I usually don't play newer titles. DOS2 is the most demanding game I have played in more than a year.
- I used to go for the top end card, but right now it makes more sense to me to go for a mid-range card that has the best price to performance. If in say 2 years I am not satisfied with the performance, I will just upgrade.

That being said, I have not done a ton of research.

Just realized you said your card was a hybrid, still the above advise would still apply.
Temps are not an issue, so I doubt your suggestion will help. Also there was no gradual increase with this problem, I just came out of nowhere. I will consider it though. Always fun to take a card apart.

Wattage is a bit misleading. Without getting too overly complicated, basically each Voltage on a power supply has a maximum current on each line. Each voltage maxxed at each amperage attains a wattage (Volts x Amps = Watts). If you get a power supply that is double (or more) of what is suggested you generally never run in to these problems and efficiency might also be better. If you have a power supply that is also rated as PFC, even better. Look at it like this: If your car has an engine that red-lines at 5000 RPM, is that where you want to run it all the time, or would you rather run it at 2500-3000RPM? Is a car more fuel efficient at 80 MPH or 55 MPH? As speed increases, so does win coefficients. As Current increases, so does heat and strain on the components themselves. I never run anything less than 800Watts PSU on my rig, even though it is probably rated at 450 maximum.

450w not even close to enough. Upgrade it. Simple fix and relatively cheap. 750-1000w should be fine.

Power supply capacitors ( the filters which reduce ripple and smooth voltages out) degrade about 10% a year with normal use. You power supply is probably due for a swap out. Lousy local power can contribute to the decline, even if you are on a UPS. Sometimes just having your fans get a little dirtier or get hair wrapped around their insides (hair gets into everything eventually) can make your fans draw extra power and make them cool less. I would try a power supply with at least another 100-150 watt capacity (headroom is key to longevity and efficiency) preferably with a strong single rail 12V line.

For crying out loud we have been over this like 3 times already its NOT a PSU/wattage problem the problem is there with an AX860 and as well as the GM450 its the card not the PSU
Does not matter if he tried a 2000 watt PSU or a kept using the 450 watt the problem would still be the same

Edit: Wijkert tried another GPU and the problem went away so its 100% the GPU and 3 days ago he posted that he would be looking to get an RTX 2060
Please update the OP so people knows whats going on and wont post about the PSU being too small when its not related to the GPU dying

The first mistake you made was buying anything Asus. I have a horror story about a fried X99 Asus motherboard that was only solved after Intel replaced the processor it fried and Amazon refunded me what I paid for the motherboard. I also have an older Asus laptop that fried its Nvidia card prematurely. The only hardware I have on my current PC that is Asus is my 27" inch LED monitor and its been great. However I will never buy anything else from them again because they don't stand behind their warranty.
