As the title says my PC has been shutting off randomly when I've been playing War Thunder, no clue why its just that game out of all the ones I play. I was trying to see what caused the shut off in event viewer and its Kernel-Power Event ID 41. I've ran benchmarks and never had it crash and all my temps are fine so I am assuming my power supply is messing up? Is there any way to verify that's what it is before I spend all that money on a possible fix?

You didn't list model name of your PSU.

When system is shutting down under load, this usually is because of overheating or PSU protections kicking in.
Your system requires a good quality minimum 750W PSU. That is, if you have single RTX 3080 in your system.

You listed RTX 3080 two times. If that means, you have 2 of them installed, then this requires 1100W - 1200W PSU.
