I've just recently built a budget PC for gaming but whenever I try to play games with my graphics card my display turns off, then on and shows "no display" even though my PC is still running. I have tried the graphics card in another PC where it works fine. I've even tried another graphics card which works in my other PC but it did the same thing. Right now i'm playing games with my integrated graphics instead of the card and its fine, PCIe Slot maybe? any solutions??

My PC specs:
CPU: Ryzen 3 3200G
RAM: 8gb
GPU: MSI AERO RX 560
MB: Gigabyte a320m-h
PSU: Corsair VS450

This is what I suspect. Is it new or you had it from a previous build?
Its most likely the PSU, if you can change it out with another unit, that would help with troubleshooting.

It also might be a faulty GPU, but you wont fully know until you either try it in another proven working system, or if you change out the PSU. I'd recommend a 550ww/500w PSU instead with a bronze/gold efficiency rating.

Is it 1x8GB or 2x4GB? If 2, is it in dual channel?

This is probably the reason. I suspect that it's not enough especially if it's aged. So, was it new or was it from a previous build?
Hey, I have 1x8GB

The PSU is new, I'll look into buying a better one

Hey, I've tested my GPU in another computer so I don't think that's the problem, thanks for the advice I'll look around!

Can you use the psu from the other computer to verify if yours is bad?
No sense in buying a new psu if that is not the problem.
