Question Computer restarts when gaming while using 1080ti

Hey everyone, I've been having this issue for a while now and I've decided to see if anyone can help.

I bought a GTX 1080Ti when it first released, and it was working fine until a couple of months ago. My computer started crashing and restarting itself when playing certain games (Mass Effect: Andromeda is the one I remember that caused the most crashes & restarts), and it constantly crashed while playing some UE4 games/projects. Every single time it crashed, it would restart my computer entirely.

In an effort to try to narrow down what the issue might be, I switched back to my old GPU (GTX 970) and tested it under the same conditions, and I've used it for months now without any crashing on any games.

I'm not sure what the issue can be. Any help anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated!

My specs:
GPU: EVGA GTX 1080Ti
RAM: 32 GB DDR3
CPU: i7-3770K
Motherboard: ASRock Z75 Pro3
PSU: Corsair CX600

Thank you for the help!

Thank you for the reply! That's what I've been assuming, but it worked well for months initially... I guess I'll buy a new PSU and see if everything works well. Anything else it could be?
