    This seems like something similar that happened with that GPU on my screen? The screen turned off and I had to restart my pc.

    You might just wanna check for such a problem being mentioned in connection with the monitor just to have something else to eliminate before settling on the GPU.

    My first guess would be PSU (like you), second would be driver.

    Have a look at this...

    Software/Drivers, hdmi, monitor, then gpu. In my case (with my new gpu and a different monitor and a fresh install of windows) it randomly loses signal and screen goes blank for 1 sec during games and sometimes during other stuff. Its probably my cable because that's the common component. But due to trades I'm only left with 10m HDMIs so not considering buying a replacement cable
