    Should I increase the power limit of my video card or decrease it?


    My video card driver has been crashing recently and I wanted to test if increasing the power limit or decreasing it would help. Which one should I do? My Card is an rx 460 4gb and doesn't have a 6 pin connector and runs only off of the pci-e slot.

    I doubt that changing it either way would improve the reliability of the card.

    One way to check: Furmark.

    I've used Furmark before but I only ran the preset one at 1080p. The card hit 61 at max but finished. Is there something else I should be doing with Furmark?
