Here is a video of what the lines look like. I'm pretty sure it's something with my GPU. https://www.reddit.com/r/NarutoNinjaStorm/comments/nfq3uc View: https://www.reddit.com/r/NarutoNinjaStorm/comments/nfq3uc/storm_4_crashed_froze_then_a_bunch_of_white/


I used DDU to remove drivers and reinstalled and worked for 1 day before it started again.
Has anybody here experience anything similar? If you need more info just ask

CPU- Ryzen 5 2600X
GPU - Nvidia RTX 2060 Super
PSU - EVGA BQ 80+bronze 500 watt
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 16 GB (8 x 2) 3200

Welcome!
I think your GPU is dead.... can you try with different GPU?
Thank you.....I tried a RX 580 at 1440P Ultra settings and it didn't crash at all. I guess I just needed someone who knows tech to also say what i was thinking. I will shoot for a 3070 Ti next week!

Also... you might wanna change your PSU... I'm not sure why your GPU failed, but 500W is not enough for 2060 or 580..... and absolutely change it before 3070 arrive!
