Hey guys,

So i have this old system (build in 2013) and i have had somme trouble latetly . My pc reboots itself when i play games that are intense on the GPU. I can somtimes play all day, and somtimes for just a couple of minutes. But once the reboot happens i just cant play a game without playing it rebooting as soon as i start playing. And i've donne my research and it's most likly my Power Supply . So i was wondering if u guys could confirm that it's my PSU and if u guys could help me pick another PSU that is widely available on most online stores.

These are somme of my specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5 4690k
Motherboard: MSI: Z97-G43(MS-7816)3.0
RAM : Hyperx 2x4GB
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970

And possible my faulty PSU: Thermaltake Smart SE730W.

Thanks in advance.

i think somthing between 100-150 euro's should be fine. the most available brands in my country are Corsair, Thermaltake and Cooler Master.
So preferably one of these brands.

What country is that?

is 650w gonne be enough if i have a 730 w PSU now ? I'm realy sorry i dont know anything about pc builds.
A 550W would be more than enough. Doesn't matter if the current PSU is a 730W if it's garbage and it's failing.

Higher wattage does NOT mean higher quality.
