Need PSU help

Hi i recently just built a new pc and now every time i try and play a game it would either freeze or the operating system would start to close it self (task bar disappear etc).

So far i suspect it is my psu not able to provide enough power when under load.
I use a zalman gv 600W psu.
My system uses a sapphire r9 290 trix and intel i7 4790.

I would like to know what wattage psu i should switch to.

Thanks

  1. Best answer
    The manufacturer recommends "750 Watt Power Supply is required.
    2x150 Watt 8-pin PCI Express power connector is required" for that graphics card.

    Your 600watt power supply is 150 watts below the recommended wattage.
  2. alright thanks ill see if i can grab a 750W psu and hope fully that would end my game freeze
