Sounds like a power supply issue. 500W is the minimum for a RX580 but that only applies to "80 Plus" rated PSUs I think, otherwise the minimum then becomes 550W without "80 Plus".  What is the make of the PSU?

Can you provide a bit more information than "ace" maybe the link to the eBay listing?

Ah so 750W then, should be enough so I don't know why it wouldn't work. If everything worked fine before you added the RX580, then maybe the card is not good?
