So I've recently just completed my 'new' build. Everything works fine when I'm surfing around on the internet, watching movies, Youtube etc. But when I play games, I have a problem with just crashing out of the game back to my desktop. Sometimes I crash out after just a couple of minutes and sometimes I can play up to an hour or more before I crash out. I have been updating my drivers for my GPU and been updating my BIOS too. My tempratures ingame is decent I'd say. When I play Hitman 2 my CPU runs at 45 celsius while my GPU runs at 65 celsius. The only thing I think might be the problem now is my PSU. I have a CV550w bronze from Corsair. Should I go ahead and invest in a new PSU now or is there anything else I could test out before doing that? Both my motherboard and GPU was buyed used, the motherboard is from october 2020 while the GPU is a little bit older. I've talked with guy who sold me the GPU, and he has never overclocked it, so that can't be the case.

My other specs:
i5-10400F
RTX 2060 Super
ASUS Prime Z490M-Plus
2x8GB RAM 3000mhz C15
1TB M.2 nvme SSD
Corsair CV550w 80+ bronze certified
