Black screen follow by reboot

Pros: Looks cool

Cons: I just purchased this last week and installed it for the first time today, but ran into serious issues 20 minutes in. As soon as I launched a game the screen would go black and I can hear the game audio, but needed to do a hard boot to view the screen again. Attempt #2 tried running the game again after a few minutes and crashed again instantly, this time with no game audio. Attempt #3 tried booting PC and PSU was fried. It was the Gigabyte PSU that came with this GPU, so I ended up requesting a refund today and purchased another PSU from MC. Upon hooking up the PSU the system launched and was happy it wasn't a component that fried. I thought games would now play thinking I had a faulty PSU, but the issue still persist. I feared purchasing from Gigabyte because of issues like this that my friends experienced in the past, now I need to RMA this card because I believe no drivers will fix it.

Overall Review: Can't say now would be the best time to purchase a 3080 with all the issues other folks are reporting.
