Hey guys..
My set up is
Intel i3-3220
d(H61)BF motherboard
Sapphire AMD RX 460 4gb GDDR5
Ram 4 Gb DDR 3 X 2
500 GB HDD

After initial boot up and installation of windows 10 and other softwares... System started crashing.. and kept saying AMD Drivers stopped responding and recovered.

Now I did some research and tried many different ways to fix it.
So it's finally either a Hardware issue (like bad GPU....... again, bought it from a frnd and it worked fine there)
Or
Insufficient power supply issue...?

This here is my PSU -> https://ibb.co/rkHBxDp

Did anyone have this kind of problem..? Can anyone tell me is This power supply really the culprit or do I have a Corrupt Graphics card...

Yeahh... The problems solved..
It was the PSU after all..
My older PSU was 17 Amps on 12 Vrail.. that's like 204 W... Clearly less than the requirement...

So I bought myself a 500 watts PSU with 38 Amps over +12 V rail..

Everything works fine.. I even installed multiple HDD's...

Hope this helps someone someday
