Both PSUs are mediocre at best. If the previous one failed, it might also damaged another component.
Describe the crash. What happens and when? Is it while gaming or at any moment? Does the PC shuts down, freezes, lags?
Download Malwarebytes and do a scan.
If you have a spare drive, use just that one in the system, removing all other drives and install windows there.

it always happens when im gaming in a gpu heavy game. my display shuts off and my fans rampup to 100% and im forced to restart the pc via a hardshutdown. will download malwarebytes and do a scan
 
You removed a crappy PSU and installed a mediocre PSU.
Use DDU to remove and reinstall your GPU drivers.

I also told you that you should try a windows reinstallation in a spare drive.

After that, if they both fail, it's hardware related.

what makes either of the psu's crappy and mediocre if i may ask. id like to know for future purchases
 
The platform they are based at, the quality of the components used, the protections they offer are some of the more important things.
You can always advise the tier list from which you should pick tier B and above for gaming rigs.
