Compatible PSU for my PC.

I have the following configuration :
Intel Core i3 2100
Nvidia geforce GT 430
4 Gb RAM
1 Tb SATA Harddisk
What kind of PSU I can buy for this config ? My pc crashes often and also overheats during gaming and then crashes. What do you suggest ?
Thank you in advance for your advice. :)

  1. Get a 300w PSU, maybe a SeaSonic one. You may want to pick up a 120mm fan and mount it on your case somewhere, if you have that option.

    Should I upgrade my RAM ? Will it help in stopping my PC crash ??
  6. 8 matching gb of ram is the best scenario , but i doubt ram is causing crashes.

    What do you think is causing the crash ? Cause my GPU gets heated like 100 C and then the PC crashes ! even when I'm not playing it crashes randomly :(
  8. Probably the high temps of the GPU.
