Here what I woukd use fir testing .. its a lil overkill but at least u know 8t will do the job. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0092ML0OC/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1396234706&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40

Buying a new PSU before you've ruled other things out is hardly the most efficient way to do things. If it's stable now, that's great. If it's not, did you wind up running memtest? Let's try to do as much as possible without randomly buying new components when they may not be the problem. Not to rule out the power supply, but hearing that he should test for it for the fourth time isn't going to do much.

i didn't run memtest86+, but i did run Windows's own memory diagnostic program overnight (selected heaviest set of tests) and it didn't detect anything. i will need to burn a bootable CD with memtest86+ and try that too.

Okay good point. Runs the mems test.. but I think it mite be power issue. But then again I could br wrong.

THIS 100%, still, the Mobo could be busted too... need to discard the PSU by using another more potent one.

and u need to test the 290 on a different machine just rule that out. Do u have a motherboard tester? And how I the temps on that board? Also check to see if u have a hot spot on the board anywhere.

Yeah but if the PSU died because it has been used at a 110% for too long... then there's no use in switching or taking away the GFX.

Yah if.. but nothing dead yet.. and I think his power supply is degrading. Thats why I was saying use a different power supply.

Seen alot of guys here say to get a higher wattage PSU and they are not wrong. THAT is your problem. Did your build on PCPartPicker and came up with 467W. LINK. You will need AT LEAST 500w. But personally I would shoot for a little more. 600w would not be too over kill.

And its alway a good idea to have a lil overkill when it comes to ur power supply. Ps 600 watt is a sweat spot.
