My PC restarts without warning while playing games, and I think it's cause PSU (Corsair VS450, old almost 2 years), my CPU temp is 45-60, GPU 30-45.
So i wanted to ask, for some good PSU for my PC

Current PSU: Corsair VS450 80+¨
CPU: i5 4690k 3,50ghz
GPU: GTX 960 4G
MB: MSI z97i ac
ram: 16 gb
ssd 120 evo

Thanks for help

Shouldn't be restarting, 450 should be plenty if the PSU is actually delivering that much. However, the VS is literally Corsair's value PSU, (cheaper components that go out more easily) it's entirely possible it's going bad.

It has a 3 year warranty (at least current ones do) so I would check into that.

That is if the PSU is the actual culprit. Are you getting any kind of error messages or does it just completely crash and restart?

The horrible quality of that PSU, would lead me to believe it is the culprit. Evga G3 series are a great choice. A 550w would cover your current needs, and some upgrades. The 650w is $10 more, and would handle more powerful graphics cards like the 1070ti or 1080.
