I recently upgraded to an RTX 3080Ti and every so often my computer does a hard shutdown. Temps seem to be fine and this didn't happen before with my Radeon RX 480 8gb. I'm thinking the 3080Ti is spiking power draw and tripping my old PSU that's about 10 years old. Happens when gaming at 4k and once at the desktop after rebooting from the hard shutdown. Should I replace my PSU? Any thoughts?

System Specs:
Motherboard-Gigabyte Z490 Vision G
CPU- Intel I7 10700k
Ram-G.Skill Trident Z Neo 16x2 32Gb 16-16-16-36
GPU-Asus Tuf Gaming Geforce RTX 3080Ti OC Edition
Samsung 870 Evo 512Gb Sata SSD
Noctua NH-D15
PSU-OCZ ZX Series 850w 80 Plus Gold

It's TEN years old. Psus do age. Replace it.
Something from Tier A that doesn't have known issues with RTX 30 gpus.

If you still have trouble with shutdowns after that, then RMA the gpu: some protection(over-voltage, over-temp, over-current, etc) is likely being tripped.
If you're using any cable extensions, or are considering using any, stop.

I was going to buy a Corsair RMx 850w Gold PSU 2021 model. Is that a good choice with enough wattage for my system?
