My computer was working fine but I had a lot of stuff installed like old games I'd never play and stuff and instead of uninstalling them all I thought I'd just reset my pc I'd have a clean slate then ( apart from my personal files). I did this and installed a few games all was fine apart from on sims 4 it would make my screen go black and speakers would make a jarring noise till I force shut down. I thought it was just this game it was doing it with but then some other games started doing it like fortnite. I figured the reset went wrong somehow as these games worked fine previously so I reset again, installed all my drivers and same issue idk what's gone wrong but anyone that could help itd be appreciated! I have windows 10, amd r9 380, Intel i7, msi motherboard, and 8gb ram need and more info just ask x

Why are you handicapping your computer with only 8 GB of RAM?
You should add another 8 GB and run it with 16 GB.

I hope your computer has a "quality" power supply with sufficient wattage to handle its power-hungry graphics card.

Like I said it's never been a problem till I reset it and I've been using my pc years but I looked at power and says 100-240 v 50 -60hz

It has a 5-year warranty and outputs 45 amps on the 12-volt rail.
I'm not a hardware expert, but I believe your computer should be okay with it. (y)

I still believe you should add another 8 GB of RAM.

Is your computer and games running better with 16 GB of RAM?

I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, so my input here is limited.
