I purchase my desktop about a month ago and it was playing all games fine. But recently when i am playing war thunder and league of legends the screen would bicker. Then completely turns black and freezes. I was able to minimized it before it crashed, all i say was a triangle mark saying graphic card fail to.... So i said okay... i uninstalled the gtx 780 ti (msi if it helps) drivers and reinstalled. But the same thing keeps happening over and over and i am not sure what else i can do!?

I need the make and model of the PSU not the make and model of the motherboard and advertised size of the PSU. The size of the PSU tells me nothing of its quality and known issues.

Thats narrows it down a little bit(still missing the model number). If its a CX750m the secondary capacitors might be failing, that model used cheap Chinese secondary caps that fail over time, and fail quicker when hot or under load. Bad secondary caps can cause system instability and random shutdowns. If possible try the card in another system and see if it does the same thing.

For a single 780 Ti this is about the best bang for the buck PSU

For a bit more you can get a higher efficiency and fully modular

If you want to SLI later then you'd want atleast 850w

or the 1000w version
