I've found that alot of time when I build a new rig, that if I plug everything in, I won't get enough power sometimes. but if i unplug everything, and add 1 thing at a time, power it up, then turn off, add another card, repeat.
that way it always seems to work. I guess it's just too big of a pull off of a new powersupply or something, not really sure. But i'd say i've had to do that about 1/3 of the time.

I know people who "burn in" their power supplies before hand.
