Everytime i start up my pc i get bluescreens Every 15 minutes and in games my games crash very often. i already set my Windows to factory settings so it can’t be the system.
I thought it might be the power supply.
I have an 450 watt power supply and a amd rx5700 de ultra 8 gb Graphics card and a amd rozen 5 2600x cpu.
Someone Please help!!

Ps:
Sorry for the bad english
And im not very good at this so i might not understand difficult things

450 watts is quite low for that system.
Its good enough but usually power supplies that are 450watts are also low quality.
can you say what exact model you psu is?

also, yes, power supply can definitely crash your games.

What are the other parts?

download hwinfo,
install and open it=click run,
close the top window which is the system summary,
in the main window at the left top click "save report",
at the bottom of the next window check "Summary for Clipboard",
after that you'll see what's in the pc,
copy by clicking "copy to clipboard" and rightclick+paste in your next respons

Yes just pull one of the matching sets, so either the 2x8gb Gskill kit or the the Corsair kit. Put the remaining kit in the A2+B2 slots which are the second and fourth slot from the cpu out.

The bios version can be found in the bios itself or do what i described above if you can without crashing. (the hwinfo report)
