Help! Comp freezing // MSI Geforce GTX 660 GPU and solid gear SDGR 500W PSU

Hello,

After installing my new GPU I've been experiencing computer freezes while playing league of legends. I play on max settings however the game isn't a very "graphic intense" game. I was concerned with my current PSU however when I went to the nvidia website it states that the card only needs a 450w PSU. Is my PSU the problem? My GPU driver is up to date. Thanks in advance for any help.

Here is a link to the PSU manufacturer website: http://www.solidgearusa.com/en/product_4/40/

    It used to happen and my old rig. My computer would shut down due to overheating. Maybe you case is too small or you don't have enough fans. A faulty power supply could also cause it.
  5. I just order a 700w PSU. Hopefully it does the trick.
