hello guys sorry for my bad english
my computer crashes with black screen or shutdown completely sometimes specially with demanding games i used to have a gt 730 and it worked fine recently i got a gtx 550ti afox 2g GDDR5 i installed it in my pc and its fine installed drivers and no problem at all in league of legends for example in high settings i get 80 fps in crysis 2 high settings 60 fps but with other games like GTA V or the witcher 3 or rise of the tomb rider it crashes even when setting the game to low somtimes league of legends too crashes but it comes back fast am thinking its maybe cuz of the PSU its an 500wat psu no 6 pins connector am using a molex to 6 pin connector adapter
rest of the specs : i5 3330 3.0ghz
4gb DDR3 1333 ram
2 hdd 7200 rpm 1 : 500gb and the other 320gb
the psu is : https://www.vultech.it/it/serie-office/37-alimentatore-500w-retail-8057284620082.html

Shows there any BSOD up before shotdown? If so, write here a code of BSOD.
Besides, do you experience any problem merely surfing the Internet or only in the games?

Can you update your driver? All i knew, Nvidia doesn't support 500 Series anymore.CMIIW

But try the diffrent Psu with 6 Pin Connector.
https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-550ti/specifications

Because the powerdraw littlebit high (116watt) as Gtx 1060 with 120watt tdp with 6 Pin Connector.
Officially for the AAA Games, need higher powerdraw.
Doesn't matter if you have a 500 watt psu if you don't have 6 pin, the Psu can't give more voltage for the GPU.

The function is diffrent i guess, between 6pin and your other cables.

But i believe it was your Ps, can't give any amount of Voltage that your Gpu needed. Take your PC to the PC Service. and try with other Psu with 6-pin.

Look into even viewer, are there any critical issues?
I suspect Kernel Power 41 is to be there.

Find an event viewer first and foremost, typing "Event viewer" in the search box. You man also open it via Run, just use a combination of Win+R and then type "eventvwr".
