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
