Just bought a Nvidia RTX 2070 and installed it. I figured that my system could handle it since this build isn't even a year old. I can play games on lower graphic quality settings but as soon as I set the settings to max my computer power cycles.

I am at a loss for what could be causing this at this point. Has anyone else had a similar issue and if so what did you do to try and solve it?

My computer has the following specs:
Intel Core i7-8700k Coffee Lake 60core
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB)
Asus Tuf Z2370 Plus LGA 1151
Samsung 860 EVO
Seagate BarraCuda 4TB
Corsair Hydro Series H50 liquid cooling system
900W Power Supply (Forget the manufacture)

what you are describing, are the symptoms of an inadequate PSU. but with the RTX launch, it just could be ANOTHER bad RTX card. do you have another GPU to try? you could also try running DDU in safe mode and reinstall drivers

New PSU comes in tomorrow. I will be installing it and testing. I got an 80 plus platinum 1000W from corsair (The HX1000) this should be more than enough to power the RTX 2070. If this doesn't work I guess I should assume the card is bad.

Your psu won't be an issue unless the psu itself it faulty. I've ran a gtx 7700k oc'ed with a 1080 for a year and my 2700x with a rtx 2080 on my evga 500b for 2 months. Might just be a bad card as i have gotten both a 780ti and a 1070 that would crash with any load that i had to RMA but in both cases the computer would brick and the fans would hit 100% until i did a hard reset.
