I know, its a weird thing. I'm hoping a new PSU will do the trick. Thinking about the Thermaltake Toughpower 850W or the Enermax Galaxy 850W.

I'm running 3 Visiontek 3870's on my 700 watt PSU. 2 of them are on one cable, the 3rd is on its own cable. It has 4 12v rails @ 18a each.
It also has 2 6 pin PCI-e type cables that are red on one end. There is also 2 red outlets on the PSU that they plug into, so I thought these were 12v rails for PCI-e. When I tried plugging the 3rd card into it windows would just die on bootup and never start again till I reinstalled it.

You might need more than 700W for (3) 3870s. I might be wring but (3) seems too much for a 700W PSU. When you reinstalled windows, were all (3) 3870s connected?

We don't got one! However, if you'd like to make your own, just go into the User CP, click Edit Signature, type Red Tide (preferably in Red). Next select the text, and insert a Hyperlink to the first page of this thread.

Sorry if you already knew how to do that.
