What exactly have you tried? We don't want to provide suggestions that haven't worked out for you.

Also, you forgot to mention the make and model of your PSU and it's age as well as the BIOS version for your motherboard. Please include the version for your OS as well.

Is the issue on Fortnite alone?

I have an EVGA 650 Watt Psu. Everything is brand new. MOBO Bios Version 3003.
I've tried changing the Tdr Level, changing everything to run as administrator. I was already running at lowest settings. I've replaced the graphics card twice went from rx 5600xt to rx 5700xt and now rtx 2060 super. i've verified the game. reinstalled the game. reinstalled windows. updated all my drivers.

I wouldnt even play with that PC until its changed, your risking expensive components.

My suggestion would be Evga G2 or G3. However you can look for something on the tier A or A+ list. Evga g2 and g3 never failed me, worth every penny.

I went with a corsair MWE 80+ Gold. Thank you so much. For your help. Hopefully everything works out

Note that MWE is from Cooler Master and not Corsair. Also note that though the highest tier in the PSU TIER list is to be trusted, the list in itself is quite poorly put together and quite debatable. This is the cheapest premium option for you right now:

There is currently a rebate so you will get it for 75$.

Also note that the PSU change will not fix your crashes, only reduce the risk it will pose to your whole system.

Fortnite is quite poorly optimized game in general. There are many reports in Forums of people having issues with Fortnite when every other games are working perfectly normal.

Before you spend any more of your valuable dollars (though the PSU upgrade is quite recommended), you may want to approach other solutions such as updating everything in your PC, BIOS, Drivers, GPU drivers, Windows Update, etc... as well as resetting the NVIDIA control panel and also reinstalling both the game and the epic games launcher as well. This will fix it for most people.

It's good that you don't use DX12 as it is still not optimised for Fortnite and causes a lot of crashes. You may also want to optmise in-game settings such as playing in Full-Screen, turning off V-Sync, turning on Multi Threaded Rendering and playing a native resolution if you're using stretched. You may also want to reset the games' userconfig.ini file as I know many people were recommended to tweak that for a performance boost.

Awesome. Thank you so much for your input and time. I really appreciate it.
