I've researched everywhere, and it seems to be a heated discussion over single-rail vs. multi-rail power supplies. Recently, I got an EVGA GTX 460 SE to replace a 9800 GTX+. Currently running this power supply:
Using this mobo:
Along with 2 sticks ddr2 1066 G.Skill ram, and a Q8200. Not the best cpu, but good when I was on a budget.
I've always had a slight issue of not being able to overclock the cpu successfully, constantly shutting off and not posting, doing it over and over, and with luck, hopefully having it post and moving on. But now, with the new card installed, I can no longer overclock the cpu (2.33ghz to 2.91ghz before).
After reading, the PSU is multi rail, and the rails have an 18 and 16 amp on each, respectfully, when the cards, new and old, require at least 24. So I thought, what if I got a single rail, would it help? Preferably with on budget, I found this:
I just need to know if this will solve stability issues, and if I'd be able to actually post on a clock that I know will work, rather than hassling to get it to overclock successfully.
