Just got this pc about 2-3 weeks ago and its been shutting off randomly in games with no bsod or warning. Just black screen like someone pulled the plug. My psu is a 700w thermaltake and I have a 5600x and a gigabyte 3070. Could it be my psu isnt a quality unit? My last pc had a corsair 750wx and i never had issues. Please, need help

Depends on the model of the PSU. 700 watts makes it a bit suspect. I don't know of any high quality models at that power level. Take the side cover off and get the model number.
