Thanks a lot...

Last question. I run power supply calculator:

https://outervision.com/b/K7rQtn I got 465 W
And another version for future 960 replacement: https://outervision.com/b/V0owN5 and got 478 W

So I'm going to get 550W PSU...is it enoght:
https://rog.asus.com/power-supply-units/rog-strix/rog-strix-550g-model/
80+ Gold 10 years warrenty

Or is it better to aim higher for 650W? like this one:
https://rog.asus.com/Power-Supply-Units/ROG-Strix/ROG-STRIX-650G-Model/
80+ Gold 10 years warrenty

Also I saw: Seasonic CORE GC 80+ Gold 550W
7 years warrenty seems to be ok for me but costs 2/3 of Asus's ones - how is this one?

Am I reading the PSU calculator reports right, do you really have both AMD and Nvidia video cards in the same computer? If so, why?

I'd recommend some 20% headroom for a)aging and b)future needs. That said 550W seems like a bit on the low side. Sufficient right now but what if you get a 970 instead of a 960? As 600W can be hard to find, a 650W version would be the best choice.

Did you know that the Asus ROG PSU's are made by Seasonic, based on their Focus platform? A Seasonic Focus Gold can be significantly cheaper, at least here. There's a Seasonic Core 650W as well.

I've got an older system by today's standards that still runs the game well by my standards.

Development, I do some GPU related open source projects based on OpenCL, CUDA etc.: machine learning, AI, neural networks etc. so I need to have multiple GPU vendors for testing/development.

So my rig has Intel, AMD and NVidia GPUs.

I may be replacing NVidias 960 by some lower end RDNA card in future like rx 5500xt - or other once lower end RDNA2 will be released. I have other rigs with NVidia GPUs so 960 is less critical but would be much nicer to run them all together.

In general I don't fire them all. Also in the past I did it and had loaded all 3 GPU's at once.

My gaming GPU is actually AMD's rx 560 - also it is marginally weaker that GTX 960 - since for this specific card I need to have direct PCI-E lines to CPU while NVidia's card works via chipset over PCI-E x4.

Thanks to all. It was indeed PSU.

I borrowed a 500W PSU and tested it. No issues while loading 100% CPU, %100 Intel GPU, 100% AMD rx560 and 100% gtx 960 for a while all together.

I ordered Corsair TX750M 80+ Gold Semi-Modular 750W PSU, waiting for it to be delivered. I took with some extra power in case I want to replace my rx560 with a powerful GPU.

Glad you got it sorted!

Your new PSU also seems like a very good one based on the few reviews I quickly glimpsed. Although it has been on the market for a couple of years already, there was no 'dead after a year' threads on the top of the search which is also a good sign. "the Corsair TX-M series incorporate 100% Japanese 105c Capacitors" sounds better than "a variety of the cheapest 80c caps". For more read https://www.jonnyguru.com/blog/2017/08/07/corsair-tx750m-2017-750w-power-supply/ hoping that's the same you got.
