It can if the ripple is really bad so the GPU isn't getting stable power.

I would upgrade the PSU to a better quality unit one in any case.

Hey, are you using a SSD or HHD? I have a HDD as a 'gaming' drive and notice the Witcher 3 stutters really badly for the first minute or so. This is especially noticeable whenever steam is updating the drive while I play. I have a Ryzen 5 1600af, 16 gb or DDR4 3000mhz RAM and a RX 5700, so it's more than capable of playing it on 1080 settings...

If you're worried about the PSU going bad, try taking an empty cardboard cylinder, (one from an empty paper towel) and place it against it when it's on.

It's good to sometimes have a second opinion with sound too.
