My current config is

AMD 8150 Black edition
Gigabyte 990xa ud3
Corsair vengence 1600 4GB X 2
Seagate HDD 7200 1TB
Asus GTX 550ti 1GB DDR5
CoolerMaster PSU 600w


I am unable to play any game. When i start any good game it hardly run for 1-2 minutes and shuts itself down. Can play only CS, MOTO GP URT3 and very small games.

I invested a decent amount and getting bad experience. I thought my PC will be faster but actually it is giving me very bad performance.

Please suggest me .

I would also guess your PSU is trash. Coolermaster PSU are generally terrible units and make MUCH less than the stated wattage. Get one from Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, XFX.

The gtx550ti isn't an amazing card but you should be able to play modern games at medium-ish settings at 1080p with your rig.

I am planning to buy Corsair Gaming Series GS700 80 Plus Certified 750 WPower Supply (CMPSU-700G). Will it work for me ? Please suggest.

Thank you so much for helping me.
A last query,

I dnt have any UPS. When i get powercuts, inverter gives me backup without interrupting, so i dnt need one for power-backup. But I am concerned about the voltage fluctuations (In India). Mainline & inverter voltage varies (noticed the bulb glows brighter while running on inverter). Is this bad for PSU ? If yes, How can i fix this ?
