83C could be a little high whereby I am not really familiar with that GPU.

My GPU runs at about 65C when I am gaming.

What brand is the Video card?

Have a cheap psu at 450w and 20a on the 12v rail, it crash my system at high level. After throttling the card with vsync on. Run smoothly at normal temperature range


found this on Newegg maybe this will help.

The video card itself is rated at 165-watt max power consumption which equals 13.75 amps
