So recently my pc started acting up. It would glitch, games would close on their own, folders took a while to open up, etc. Then many games while installing would fail from which I realized there's some issue with my computer. I ran memtest and found out my ram was failing. Soon, I got the ram replaced but new troubles started. My computer wouldn't start. Not even the motherboard screen would post. later on, I changed the cmos battery and I was able to start my computer, boot into windows normally, but then 5 minutes later I got the same problem (No display, no post). Nothing helped, till I switched to the vega graphics on my ryzen 2400g processor. My computer works like a charm with the inbuilt graphics on the processor but fails after 5 min with the GPU. A friend suggested that my GPU has probably failed but I don't understand how it only failed after I bought new ram sticks. Is it the GPU that has failed or is it the PSU that is failing to provide power?

My humble PC build:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H
Processor: AMD Ryzen 2400G
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon RX 570 4 GB
RAM: 8GBx2 Kingston ValueRam 2400mhz DDR4
PSU: Corsair VS 550
HDD: Western Digital20EZRZ 2TB Internal Hard Drive

The Corsair VS 550 is a very basic unit, not recommended for gaming. To test it you would have to get a PSU load tester that would cost more than another PSU.
I guess I will be buying a new PSU soon. What would you recommend considering my specs?

EVGA makes pretty good units, https://www.newegg.com/evga-600-bq-110-bq-0600-k1-600w/p/N82E16817438100?Item=N82E16817438100.
What is the part number on your memory? If it is not Part Number: KVR24N17S8/8 than it is not the right one for you motherboard. You need to run Memtest86 on the new memory, I didn't see matched kits in the Kingston Value ram for your motherboard, only single sticks. They have a matched set of 8X2 in the HyperX: Part Number: HX424C15FB3K2/16

Sadly here in India, we don't have EVGA PSUs. Any in Coolermaster, Corsair, Thermaltake or Seasonic that you would recommend? Also, both sticks are KVR24N17S8/8. The problem persists even with a single stick.
