Hi, lately my pc is doing weird stuff, every time I game it closes after 15 minutes sometimes more or less. I replaced my c drive because it was not working any more (went to a pc specialist) so now my pc works but my games kept crashing (before my c drive was replaced i also kept crashing). So I’ve read on the internet that it’s maybe my power supply unit. I currently have an rtx 2070 super plus i7 7700k (b250m bazooka motherboard) my psu is 4-5 years old and its ~600W

I would see if you can find a PSU to test. Sounds like a PSU issue, although it could be a number of other things causing the issue. Doe't it only seem to shut down under heavy load? Does it shut down when your gpu is working hard? I would guess its the power supply tho and I would recommend trying to get a newer 80+ 600w or better (80+ bronze or 80+gold are my recomendations.

 

When you say it closes do you mean shut down? if its the program crashing It could be somthing else!

I am a human that makes mistakes! If I'm wrong please correct me and tell me where I made the mistake. I try my best to be helpful.

What is the power supply exactly? just sating that is 4-5y old and 550W doesn't really say a lot. A good quality power supply might be able to last 10y or more.

the point is get it from a reputable manufactuer like corsair/EVGA and make sure it has a decent whattage/rating

No. Evga and corsair have known bad units like actually will kill your computer units.

 

There is a psu tier list for a reason and it's based on plenty of reviews.

Yeah its with games like battlefront II escape from tarkov,... then my gpu is working hard. I can’t control if the psu is working properly. My games are just closing without error but yesterday my pc rebooted and got a blue screen 😞

Again what psu do you currently have? Your config can run on a GOOD QUALITY 550w unit.

Buy a seasonic GM550w should be good enough for your current build, if you are looking forward to upgrade your mobo CPU or even GPU you can also buy a GM750w which should last forever

Most probably it is. I would recommend this https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-RM750x-Certified-Modular-Supply/dp/B079HGN5QS/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=rm750x&qid=1611796539&sr=8-2 It is fully modular and comes with a 10-year warranty, meaning that you won't need to worry about it in the foreseeable future.

Does 750w is a good amount of watt or is it too much

It is a great middle ground. Gives you the option to upgrade down the line to more powerful components and keep using the same PSU.
