Solved Need PSU help Tags: Power Supplies Games Components Last response: June 10, 2014 10:50 PM in Components Share rizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz June 10, 2014 10:27:51 PM 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 More about : psu Reply to rizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Best solution terry4536 a b ) Power supply June 10, 2014 10:36:16 PM 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.
