Often my PC reboots when I play games. I benchmark everything however everything seems totally fine. This makes me think its the PSU however I'm not sure about that. The weird thing it's that sometimes I can play a game for hours. Also when I play an old game like Aliens VS Predator3 it starts to reboot after like 30 mins but when I play something like Watch Dogs 2 it either let me play for hours or it reboots after 30. I hope the power supply its faulty because its one of the cheapest components so I don't need to spend high amounts of money.

Well i have a Vega 56 Red Dragon Edition
16 GB of RAM T-force
I5-9400F
240 GB SSD from Team Group
1TB 7200 rpm(forgot the brand its not really necessary anyway)
ASUS Prime B-360 Plus-mobo
Kolink 600W(only 500w are continuous),80% efficiency,from what i've heard it's decent brand from Germany but i'm starting to doubt that.
My temps are decent as I have 2 120mm intake fans in the front and one 80mm exhaust fan at the back.

If you dont mind pay for a new PSU right off, I agree it is the best long shot to make the story short.
I would upgrade the wattage a bit though - at least to 650W.

Any chance you can get hands a swap unit ?

Well when I'll have the possibility I will buy a new PSU straight away. Until then I'll stick only to browsing the internet and doing some work in word documents. So far I'm thinking into buying an 700 W EVGA PSU.
That's the link:https://www.ebuyer.com/856195-evga-100-br-0700-k3-700-br-80-bronze-700w-power-supply-100-br-0700-k3?mkwid=s_dc&pcrid=51482424299&pkw=&pmt=&gclid=Cj0KCQjw0IDtBRC6ARIsAIA5gWu7x__0nFVbj2zM8_HCx3-ssihxPbEh2oAUoswj9zziaVLH9HxTIvkaAuYEEALw_wcB


Do you think it's good enough?

Hey there. I'm no expert or whatever, but I had the same problem some time ago. I bought a new PSU and it's all working now. My new one is a Thermaltake Toughpower 850w RGB, it's a pretty good brand and model if you wanna check it out

...
that points me to my favorite: bad solderjoints on the PCB power pins.
Have a look-see on the GPU pcb if it looks burnt in this area.
If you have the guts, do the same on the mobo.

Usually you find a stinky in these areas.
