Screen goes black whilst playing games, seeing FPS drops after changing PSU

Hi guys,

The other day I changed my PSU (which meant changing all power cables inside PC) to fix an issue I had with my PC restarting. That issue is now fixed but I now have a new issue which has started happening since I changed my PSU. Whilst playing games (Such as World of Warcraft), the screen will freeze, go black or a combination of the two. I'm not sure what's wrong but I've tried unplugging my GPU (GTX 780) and plugging it back in (Just in case it was a loose connection). Has anyone got any ideas what I could do?

Many thanks,
Edd

    Might have gotten a faulty cable powering the GPU, try another spot on the PSU, and try a different cable.
