The question is why, if this is such a widespread problem, are they crashing. I have a feeling it is a combination of problems across a wide spectrum. There are probably a lot of people out there with old or inexpensive PSUs having issues. People who had no problem driving a 1080 maybe? Perhaps driver issues, although a simple roll back could confirm that. Maybe it is a couple of particular games that need something? The PC landscape is huge, and filled with people of varying knowledge and experience.
And we can't forget the extra buzz created by the "other" GPU adherent's amplifying the issues. Nothing better than reading the trolls tell everyone how they are "waiting for the next release" that will be a killer
