Hello! Thanks for any insight in advance...

I’ve just purchased and installed a new EVGA 1080 Ti SC2. Since installing, ive removed all old drivers and installed all new drivers. The problem im having is the computer will power cycle once i’ve launched call of duty black ops 4 after running for just 1-3 minutes. (Very high settings)

The computer boots fine, stays running under no gaming load, but powercycles in game. (No blue screen, error message, just power cycle back to login screen.

850w power supply, i5 4670k cpu liquid cooled, 8gb ram, Gigabyte Z87X-D3H motherboard (attached image specs) only change is new GPU.

Im thinking it could be a bad gpu, bad power supply, or something overheating?

Any help would be really appreciated!

You need to post the exact pw supply. There are a lot of 850W pw supplies. If it is a seasonic or high end corsair, it should be fine. To test the pw supply, go to the support page for your board and download/install system info viewer;
https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-D3H-rev-1x#support-dl-driver
Note you probably have to install app center prior to installing siv. Once you have siv installed, monitor your voltages; specifically 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values. Do this twice; once under a normal load and also while running a stress test ie prime95 or OCCT. Let the stress test run for at least 2min prior to recording voltages. Post that info here.

That is not a quality pw supply. While it may or may not be causing your problem, I would seriously consider installing a high end pw supply ie seasonic, corsair [AX, HX, or RM models ONLY]
