It all started when my old PSU died, I replaced it with a new EVGA 550 GD and it works fine without the GPU but when I plug the GPU my PC completely shuts off after 30 seconds or so. I tried booting Linux with a live CD and boots fine but as soon as I try to watch a video on youtube it shuts off. I also tried clearing the CMOS

My specs:
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte H61M-S1
  • CPU: i5 3330 @ 3.00GHz
  • RAM: 2x8gb Kingston KHX1600C10D3/8G
  • GPU: Sapphire Nitro Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • PSU: EVGA 550 GD
  • 1 SSD
  • 2 HDD
  • 2 fans
my old PSU was a Thermaltake TR2 500w, it lasted 7 years and worked fine with my GPU for 2 years until the outlet sparked while playing GTA V

I already ordered a new motherboard, CPU and RAM (Ryzen 5 3600, ASUS Prime b450-PLUS and 2x8gb DDR4) but I want to know if the GPU/motherboard is faulty or is the new PSU?

So I tried something out of curiosity... I booted the PC without USBs attached to the machine and it booted fine, I connected my mouse to the front port, started OCCT PSU stress test and it lasted for 15 minutes until I decided to move the mouse and then it shuts itself off again
