thank you for replying. my computer will be able to run games like mine craft with no problem but when i try to run games like insurgency or Verdun the computer will go black and the fans will start spinning very fast. At this point the computer will attempt to completely restart. most times it will fully start up again but sometimes it will get stuck in a loop of starting up and crashing.

Im not very sure what the make and model is of the psu. it is probably upwards of 10 years old and says PSCI- 500BLK. not sure if any of this helps but thank you.

CX550 would work fine with your hardware. I would reccomend a little higher quality and more efficient PSU if possible.
