^^^Just curious if this will do the trick. I've been having problems with my games stuttering after about 5 minutes of play and think my PSU is the problem after trouble shooting.

GPU-Not the problem. I switched my GTX 680 with my kids GTX 460 and have the exact same problem.

RAM-Same, switched with my kids RAM and have the exact problem.

HDD-Switched games to different HDD and have the same problem

CPU-Not 100% on this, but know my temps have been staying real low when testing.

PCI-E-Switched slots, same problem.


So pretty much all signs would point to the PSU right? I also noticed that youtube videos have the same slowdown as well.

The problem with consumer-level power supply testers is that they don't let you specify a load, so even if your PSU is the source of your problem, if the problem does not occur at a low load, the tester will just tell you you're A-OK and you'll still be at square one. There's not much you can do about that with cheap equipment, unfortunately.

So I'm guessing that stands for any power supply under the $50 range?

Yes, add a couple of zeros to that figure and then we're talking.
