Oh sorry I didn't know this I'm a PC noob. Thank you for your help.
One more question:
Would you know why my PC reboots when I launch 1 particular game with EasyAntiCheat Launcher but when I launch the same game with BattleEye Launcher it boots perfect every time and when I boot any other game it boots fine?

My guess is that game has an excessive power spike. I have seen many people reporting power problems with Corsair RM (non X) when running 3080 or 3090’s. From what I read that psu has below average transient response performance which is an issue with these gpu’s power spikes.

Oh, even if the problem mainly occurs in the booting up of the game and not while actually playing the game?
Also what PSU would you recommend I upgrade to?
