[SOLVED] GPU or PSU or something else?

I'm trying to find out what caused my PC (2019- Ryzen 7 build) to suddenly crash that also impacted the monitor(tv). I want to understand so it doesn't happen again please?

While gaming... I heard a series of "sequential" beeps then the PC shut down. When I restarted the PC -everything on the TV monitor was reversed. (Both PC and TV are plugged into separate surge protectors) I tried the hot keys to fix the text-nothing worked. I swapped to a new HDMI cable- no change, pulled out the GPU, dusted and re-inserted. The TV didn't recognize the pc, afterward... But I found, if I moved the pc a little here and there- then the TV did pick it up (so maybe issue with HDMI connector on the GPU - Radeon RX 580?) I swapped to an older PC- saw the same reversed text with the TV, same result if using DVD player.

In short- bought a new 4K HD TV/monitor and ordered a new gaming pc.

Below are the specs:

AMD RYZEN 7 2700x 3.7 GJZ (4.35GHZ Turbo) 8-core

0MB cache 105W CPU Tray

120GB ED Green SSD 2.5” SATAIII 6.0 GB/S
1TB WD Caviar Blue HDD 3.5” SATAII 7200 RPM 6.0 GB/S
ADATA SPECTRIX XPG D80 RGB 9GB DDR4-3200 Memory
Case Fan 120 mm
ASETEK 570 LXL 240mm Water Cooloer
Case Fan 120 mm
AMD AM4 Retention Ring (Asetek)
Syber M 2.0 Black Mid Tower
ASUS TUF X470-Plus Gaming AM4 ATX W/ RGB USB 3.1 SATA
3 2 M.2 Crossfire
AMD Radeon Rx 580 8GB GDDR 5 PCI-E 3.0
Windows 10 Home
Onboard 7.1 sound
ATNG 800 WATT 80 Plus Gold Power Supply
Monitor- Vizio M420NV =NOW replaced with Vizio P65Q9-J01


(The PC in question does work with new TV, but shuts down after 20 min while gaming).

Questions are- any ideas on what was the root cause?
Can this be prevented or anticipated sooner, if yes how please?
Is the PC salvageable?

Thanks!
M

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs. Please list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:
Monitor:

Considering your posts seems to indicate that you now have two system(old and newly bought), we're going to be seeing two sets of system's specs. As for the TV portion of your post, do you have access to a monitor, as opposed to a TV? The TV have a make and model?
