My current PC config. is as under.

2.CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
3.RAM- DDR3 Corssair xms3 2x4GB
4.Graphic Card- ATI Radeon HD 5670 1GB GDDr5
5.Sound Card- Creative Sound Blaster extreme music
6.MISC- wireless keyboard/mouse, Printer, Modem, etc...
7.HDD - 2 numbers (1tb hitachi HDD sata3gbps, 500gb seagate HDD)
8. PSU- Zebronics 400Watts


do i need to upgrade my PSU if yes please suggest minimum required PSU output power to above PC. thanks for your inputs in advance.

Even if the issue isn't PSU related I would upgrade that PSU to something more reliable from corsair or seasonic.

Cheap PSU's don't tend to be able to put out anywhere near the advertised wattage and usually can barely peak at them.

A 400w PSU from a good brand will be plenty.

That recommendation if for 4 of your GPU's.

Since you only have one then 400w is recommended.

This PSU is usually good for systems such as yours and will be reliable. Let me know if you have any more questions.
