CPU: AMD FX 8320 Black Edition

Motherboard: Gigabyte 970A-DS3P
Kingston 120GB SSD

PSU: 550W Corsair VS

I have quite an old PC that has been working fine up until a few months ago. Now it will crash randomly when on Chrome, when trying to run a game, or when running a graphical benchmark.

Recently upgraded from an R9 280 to an RX 580 card on the advice of a PC repair shop to try and fix crashing, however, I still get the same crashes with the new card in.

Any idea what could be causing it? I'm thinking it might be PSU, could it work fine for years then suddenly have an issue?

Many thanks in advance
