My computer crashes to a random solid color while I play certain games, so far it was on R6 and Rogue Company, the same thing happened on my old computer

My Newly Built Pc Specs

Ryzen 5 3400g
Radeon 570
8gb ddr4
500w thermaltake psu
ASRock b450m
240gb m2 ssd 240gb ssd 1tb hdd

Could it be overheating? I haven't monitored the heat, but using the AMD Radeon overlay, under the "Current Temperature" I've seen it go up to 80c, But I'm not sure if it goes higher, I am also unsure if that is for the GPU or CPU or an average temp, Like I said, the same thing happened on my old pc, so i got a new GPU (Radeon 470) and that did not fix it. The only thing that stayed the same between the two is the monitor, as well as the keyboard and mouse.

My GPU is brand new, and updated

Thanks

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Probably because of your PSU. What is the model for the Thermaltake PSU and how old is it? You should have at least 600W~650W of power for the entire system with an RX570 in the system.

Thanks for the welcome, the power supply, I believe is a 500 watt 80+ Thermaltake
(To be exact: Thermaltake Smart Series 500W SLI/CrossFire Ready Continuous Power ATX 12V V2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply Haswell Ready PS-SPD-0500NPCWUS-W)
