I bought an ASUS 1070 dual and an additional 8GB of RAM for my PC shortly after Christmas. The RAM works as intended with no problems, however the GPU, when installed, worked for about 5 minutes before entering a cycle of starting and crashing the PC with no blue screen (would just shut off completely like a reset and boot). I uninstalled the GPU and reinstalled windows (as it had corrupted it), and after a few days swapped out my CX450M PSU for an EVGA 600w one I bought on sale. The PC started, I got all the software and drivers installed, and it worked for a little under a half hour when my monitor froze and my mouse completely lost power after a few seconds (keyboard stood lit up, PC on). The only fix was a hard reset which was followed up by the same issue I faced with the 450w PSU, but with some random full boots thrown in that would work until the freezing/mouse losing power thing happened again. The PC works completely fine with the GPU uninstalled. Should I try to buy an RM650X and see if that works or does anyone else have any ideas as to what is going on? I assumed the extra 150w would've fixed the problem to be honest.

Unfortunately I have no way to test that, but it displays properly and the power light is on. It also played well with asus gputweak ii and the installed drivers, it just resets the pc after a while. I got it to work for a few minutes again today, however it crashed when I tried to start up a game of league of legends.
