Your PSU is causing it but you're lucky your motherboard is decent enough to avoid frying every thing.

I still have 2 years warranty left on my Antec edge 550W should I send it back? and is there a way to tell if anything else got damaged?

ASUS anti surge sometimes just randomly goes off sometimes. I would take note of that warning, but not be too concerned about it. 

 

I'd also turn it off ASUS anti-surge in the bios

So is there a way to check if my PSU is dying or the Asus anti surge just randomly going off?

Does the system run smoother/without dying to Anti Surge without a dGPU installed?

Dedicated GPU.

 

Just RMA that PSU and don't take any chances. In fact, go for a better one to begin with.

Your PSU is great, so as usual it's just Asus Anti-Surge making problems out of thin air. Disable it and see if the crashes don't happen anymore. Also try what STRMfrmXMN suggested.

Dedicated GPU, I.E. your GTX 970. Just run the system off the onboard graphics of your i7 to see if it works fine. If it does then you probably have a PSU issue.
