Pc restarts when opening WoW

  Bris 19:18 01 May 2014

Running a game will put a lot of pressure on both your PSU and graphics card whereas video rendering is heavy on processing power which wont stress your PSU.

You are probably correct in suspecting your PSU as it sounds as if its giving up the struggle.

If the PSU is a non branded version that came with the PC then its probably not up to the job especially if you have upgraded your graphics card. If you consider replacing the PSU then I would recommend one of 650 watts minimum of a known brand but first it may be worth determining if the noise is coming from the PSU or graphics card but dont take too long as if its the PSU thats failing then it could take the rest of the PC with it when it finally blows.
