I recently built a mid range gaming pc and my specs are
i5 2500k (base clock)
NVIDIA Gigabyte GTX 660 OC 2GB DDR5
Corsair GS600 (600W) power supply

This happens when i play high end games Like Bf3.(This happens when there is a power cut and always i have a huge inverter that can even power up a 50inch LED tv . But while switching from main power to inverter, The pc shuts down suddenly.Not even a blue screen error.)
This is happening for almost a month now. Is there any solution for this problem?

Hi Niranjan,

Inverter will not work with PC as it may take few seconds before switching on to battery mode when there is a power cut . You will be requiring UPS for that or Inverter come UPS (Where you can switch between UPS and Inverter). Ask engineer who installed inverter for you also make your calculation of total wattage you will be requiring depending on PSU which is 600W in your case.

Okay. I have a UPS but i don't think that its powerful enough. I will definitely buy a new one. Thanks :)
