Just to complete: I own a 750W power supply, its strong enough.
Wattage only means it "should" be able to handle it. It really doesn’t mean anything - it could be a bad rail or the stress of the card causes issues. How much load are the other system items adding?

That you had issues across systems either means you have two weak systems, or the extraordinary bad luck of getting another bad card. Strictly speaking, ASUS Strix cards usually are pretty good. My 980 strix ran for years with no issues and I still have it as backup in case my Titan Xp craps out
