My old GPU could run practically nothing, was a GTX 610. Never was into PC gaming but got a card that could run some games at decent settings and figured i'd give it a try. Long story short, I'm pretty sure it's frying my 500W PSU. When I play H1, roughly 3-5 minutes after i start playing, my computer gives off a burnt plastic smell, theres no real signs of anything being burnt or melted inside of the PSU, but when i opened it's case, it reeked. Anyone know if maybe I need more power?
My case has 2 fans, 1 on each side, front and back, and my PSU has a 12v fan underneath it which is running at all times.
CPU: AMD FX(tm)-4300 Quad Core Processor 3.80GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
Motherboard: MSI Z1-7641
SSD: Not sure but i know it's a 2TB Toshiba drive
RAM: 8GB DDR3
PSU: Turbolink ATX-XG500W
I have a DVDRAM too
If any other specs are needed, let me know and i'll update this
When you first opened the PC was there a bunch of dust? If there was I'd suggest using a can of dustoff and see how much dust could be in your PSU and other parts, doesn't have to be prefect.
Yes, I did clean it with dustoff, then i tried too play, same issue /:
And yes IP but they are extremely overpriced, and I'd prefer too have Geek Squad install it cause i know nothing about PC's either, and that's around $99 as well lol. Guess i'm just going too buy one on amazon, thanks guys!
