It is a 2015 pre built XPS
I run windows 10

I’ll buy a new PSU tomorrow should I upgrade more wattage?

i havent done any hardware upgrades other than the ram but they put that in 2015 when it was built.
should i still check ram ?

i can buy a new GPU if thats the case aswell ive been looking into it recently actually.

if u want to upgrade ur gpu then yeah get a psu with more wattage but you should also figure out what gpu ur getting first. also you should tell me if your operating system is on a hdd or ssd because this issue you are having could be a corrupt operating system due to being on an old hdd. before you buy anything i would check the temps first make sure ur cpu or gpu isnt overheating. then check to see if u can run on integrated graphics with no issues. have you ever reinstalled windows?

I download the nxzt or what ever my cpu GPU %s arent high
Do i need to rip out the GPU to run intergrated graphics?

it wouldnt hurt. i guess a better test would be to try your gpu in a different computer. but if your computer runs games fine on integrated graphics with no crashing then it narrows it down to ur gpu or psu, but if it still crashes then you can start thinking about a new comp or try a new psu and see if that helps

Are you positive it’s either GPU or PSU?

I’ll replace both tomorrow I don’t care
