My pc specs:
I3 6100 3.8ghz
Sapphire Nitro + Radeon RX480 4gb

So my monitor keeps turning off but my pc keeps running, i tried wiith the cpu integrated card and it worked fine but with my gpu it keeps happening all the time, it happened when i was trying to create this thread and it will happen again in a few minutes, sometimes it runs for an hour, if i'm doing light tasks it lasts some time but when i'm playing it happens in 10 minutes after opening the game, i restored the pc and tried different drivers and it lasted hours but after crashing for the first time it starts lasting less and less time, i already tried with different cables and nothing, i have no idea why this is happening, if you know what the problem is i would be very appreciated. Also some times after crashing i need to wait a lot of time to use it again because it keeps telling me that the monitor has no signal. (sorry for my engliish, i can't explain it better).

Thanks for replying, my power supply is an XFX TS 550W 80 Plus Bronze and i've been using it for 2 years but i haven't experienced any issue with it before.
 
Just because you haven't had issues with the PSU before doesn't mean they can't pop up now.

If possible, I would try the GPU in another PC just to make sure the same issue doesn't occur.

And, again, if possible, try a spare PSU with the computer and seeing if the problem occurs.

I found out the problem, looks like the pci-e cable has some kind of problem but luckily the mb has two cables so i was able to switch them easily.. anyways, thanks for answering my thread!
