Hey, a friend of mine just helped me build my first PC. It has shut down a few times while I was using, so I'm trying to figure out whats wrong. I don't know too much about these things, but it seems like the issue could be power-related maybe?
I've tried using a few different power supply calculators and they're all showing me completely different results (from 360w to 700w).

I would really appreciate it if you checked out my build and let me know if there's anything wrong with it.

430w should be plenty for that build. No problem there. The PSU is not the best quality but it should have no problem running the computer.
