Hello every time I play any intensive game(Overwatch, GTA V) my computer restarts. I'm not sure if its my power supply or, graphics card. I have had some problems with my graphics card before (artifacts when playing intensive games). Should I buy a new power supply or a new graphics card? My part list OS: Windows 8.1 Cpu: i5 4570 (stock cooler) Ram: 16 gb of ram MotherBoard: MSI Z87 G43 GPU: Xfx r9 280 Power Supply: Cosair CX600 Any help is greatly appreciated ! Thank you!

What are your GPU idle and load temps? Restarts in games are either tempor PSUas you pointed out. Also, your PSU is the entry level series from Corsair, so could indeed be the cause from demanding games.
Well those older CX's are kinda notorious for this problem. But I would still check the temps to make sure that's not the problem.
