Can PSU cause Screen of death?

Hi

Ive recently upgraded my graphic card to gtx 650 with a power supply of 405w

When playing Total war Empire about 2 or 3 hours in to it get a Blue Screen and then it reboots (Screen of Death)

Could it be my power supply is too lower or another problem?

Any helps would be great

Thanks

Phil

    yeah what brand model is the psu if its a cheap one very possible,405w doesnt sound like any reputable brands they usually round the numbers off, also helps if we know the rest of your system too
  2. Im at work at the moment but its just a bog standard one that came with the computer.

    The computer is advent
    intel i7 2600
    8g memory

    It also only seems to happen when playing games if that helps.
  3. doesnt really help but check brand when u get home if its not a reputable brand, yeah i wouldnt put it past it
