PC shutting off after maxing out graphics

  Koko123 15:28 09 Jan 2019

So I got AMD ryzen 2600, GTX 1070, new Asus motherboard and 2x4 3000 corsair vengeance RAM today, I got old 700W PSU. Started playing AC;odyssey and PUBG for roughly an hour max out without any problems, then i switched to Battlefield 1 but as soon as I set resolution scaling on 200 PC crashed. Then I started Kingdom come deliverance and also as soon as I set image quality on very high PC crashed. If I set settings then it becomes stable, I blame it on PSU, but could check how much for the consumption on very high settings because it crashes. Its not a temperature problem I checked that already, so what do you guys think?

not your psu I got a gtx 1080 with everything maxed using a 650 psu , that's 10% safety margin, if you mean 2 x 4 3000 do you mean 2 x 4 gb ram , if so up it to 16gb , in the mean time don't do max anything just lower some settings.
