    Computer reboots in the middle of gaming


    Hi, so I've done a bit of research and I only saw some 2018-2020 articles on this. My computer will restart at any give moment playing intensive vr games. I just recently swapped my ram so I'm wondering if that may be the issue, on the other hand I'm wondering if my graphics card is failing. Can anyone tell me how to check and find out which component is causing this issue Here are my specs: CPU: IntelR CoreTM i7-9700K CPU @ 3.60GHz PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 850 B2 Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 4GB x4 GPU: GeForce® GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Baseboard: ASRock Z390 Pro4 Thanks!

    :)
