no, because the PSU doesn't connect to the motherboard in any way that allows data and information to travel around therefore no software is capable of seeing what it is, all it does is supply power to the system and extra components.

Did you build it yourself or was it already prebuilt for you?
If prebuilt, is it a custom prebuilt from somebody you bought second hand from or is it prebuilt like Dell or HP or custom prebuilt like iBuyPower and CyberpowerPC?

ok, so definitely a cheap power supply in there for sure.
I would wager that to be your issue.
It's probably just not able to properly power both the GPU and CPU you have.
could u recommend a PSU to buy thats compatible? [edit] and do u think it could be my hard drive and that a ssd would help or nah?

it is possible that you could be experiencing issues from a slow hard drive, but only if it's 5400rpm, because a 7200rpm drive shouldn't cause these kinds of issues.

I can recommend a PSU, but what I recommend will depend on your budget.

Please provide a budget and tell me the currency and your country.

Delete all partitions of this drive. And create new partition. After that install games on it. (if it is boot drive then add at least 120GB of SSD.)

And I recommend you to get 550 or 650 watt of PSU. From Corsair or Coolermaster... It is recommended because 400 watt PSU can't handle this much load.
