Boot loop because of video card or PSU?

CyberGuy 2,306 297 March 23, 2016 at 07:06 AM
I recently acquired a GTX 980 Ti to use with my Corsair CX600M PSU, but I'm running into issues with it boot looping. This wasn't the case when I had my previous video card (Radeon 290X) in place. Given that the recommended required power for the 290X (650W) is higher than GTX 980 Ti (600W), is it still possible that the PSU may not be able to drive it? The PSU is classified as a Tier 4 [tomshardware.com] (expand the first post), which is recommended against for gaming purposes.

Is it possible, maybe but I don't think it's likely the problem. GPU's are not typically using much power at boot so I doubt it would stress the PSU enough to cause problems.

I would instead look at software issues. Did you remove the old drivers before putting the new card in?
