Tell us the exact make and model of your PSU, 80+ rating and wattage mean absolutely nothing when it comes to the quality of a PSU.

Edit: Downvoting out of spite isn't exactly a good practice, either. We want this user to not have any issues if they end up buying this GPU and there's no way to know if the PSU will be decent enough based on wattage and 80+ rating alone. Also, new account made probably just to downvote my reply, huh? That's a new low.

@justquant statement is correct. Impossible to know without knowing the brand, model and age of your current PSU. The RX 580 uses less power than GTX 770 so should be ok if you have good quality PSU that's not too old.

Did you use a driver sweeper to remove all traces of the 770 video card driver or at the least uninstall it then install the 580 driver?

Not a very good power supply but the GTX 770 draws more power than the RX 580 does.
i dont have a rx 580 yet so i dindt do anything there.

I’m gonna be honest, then, you kindof deserved this black screen. The one thing you should not cheap out on is a power supply, and it looks like you cheaped out on it. Efficiency rating and wattage don’t mean crap in power supply quality. Do yourself a favor and get a good power supply next time.
I dindt chose the powersupply myself i bought a pc used . Dont blame me for others decissions

I searched up the brand
Model > brand every time. Lots of well known brands have bad power supplies.
Take EVGA for example, people think they are a good brand that makes good power supplies, but they have absolute hot garbage power supplies like the N1.
Same with Corsair. They only make at least decent power supplies right? Think again. Their VS series power supplies are not good quality at all.
