    220W PSU. GTX 550Ti. That's an old build...

    Upgrade your PSU...

    Despite the extra frequency and enhanced back-end, the GTX 550 Ti 1GB requires just a single 6-pin PCI-E power cable, and has suitably diminutive power requirements. Nvidia recommends a 400W PSU, with a maximum stated TDP of 116W.

    Intel Core i3 550 has a maximum stated TDP of 75W. If you have a 220W PSU, upgrade it ASAP as it's definitely not enough to supply the power, to atleast a 400W PSU.

  2. Well you broke your card bitcoin mining by the sound of it.

    Was never going to be a good idea on a 6 year old GPU , which im surprised was even running on that 220w PSU.
