His PSU is fine. Dell puts high quality PSUs in their builds, especially the XPS series. If the PSU fails, then they have to replace it, right? So why not spend an extra $10 per unit, and save what could be $150 in tech support and PSUs per each PSU that goes bad.

Its not, it wont even start up. I replaced it with my old 9800 and left it out over night and put it back in this morning and it didnt work. I've also unplugged my CD drives and nothing.

Plus IF it boots up to desktop it runs smooth I played STALKER(not the prettiest but one of the most taxing games) for about 8 hours straight. Woke up the next day played it for a good 6. Never over heated and never had any real problems.

Plus after it messed up last night and I couldnt get it to run, I pulled it out and it was cool enough for me to hold in my hand.

Drivers maybe. Do a clean install of the latest official drivers from ATI. As for the temperature, use ATITool to check the load temps; these things cool down rather quickly when they go idle.

Yeah Dell psu's are not bad at all. I had a a old 250 watter from about 3 years ago that powered my P4 631 and a 6600 gt with 4 hdd's held up fine. very solid construction.

See I didnt think it was my PSU on that link in my original topic a lot of the people have higher PSU's and had this problem.

So, will I have better luck with the HiS?

I think it would be a MUCH better upgrade to grab a X1950XT and a (maybe) used S939 motherboard and CPU.

Maybe. You could end up getting another defective card for all I know. I still say you should exhaust all other possibilities before getting another card (check load temps. for the card, try different sets of drivers, etc.). Still, it's your time and money, so the final decision is yours.

Yes I have Sapphire X1950PRO and when you restart, unless you completely turn the computer off, it won't post. This is solely hardware problem. I've tested it with supplying more than enough power for 2 of it to run but still.

However, sometimes when I'm on a weak PSU, it posts and restarts fine!

It's in RMA though, the card is buggy as ****.

If you could, please wait until I get the Sapphire back and give you the final answer whether or not to buy the Sapphire. Though the extra 256MB makes difference.
