I would start a new thread in PSU's section and see what some of the more knowlegable PSU people think. It can get quite confusing between what is listed as available and what is actually there. Since you are running 2 hdds, one optical (assuming), 4 sticks of ram, PCI card, GFX card, fans, CPU etc., I can easily see that PSU getting taxed pretty heavily. PSU's are one of the mroe overlooked things in a system, but are by far one of the most important.
My buddy asked me to limit my system, so all I have that is running is only 1 harddisk, 1 pci-usb card,mouse,keyboard, 2x9cm fans and 1x12cm fan. I removed 1 hardisk and my optical storage. True I would have known better if I read up about psu 3years back...=.= no point buying a cheapo PSU only to know it doesn't have enough juice for a newer upgrade or a terrible electrical bill...=.=

kkz. keep me update. So it should be my PSU right? Sleepy nightz

The 520HX I have is great and so is the 620 version. Earthwatts and PC Power and Cooling, Seasonic also make some nice PSU's. Be advised, there are only a set number of companies that make PSU's, so often times one company (corsair for example) can have more than one company make its PSU's. Some better than others. (so, you could have 2 different PSU's from Corsair that vary in quality depending on who made them for them)

I would figure out a budget and post that. You should be able to get a good idea of what people recommend for that price range. i would look at spending $75-$100 at least. (also, look used too)

Good luck. I hope you get it all figured out.

Yea I'll be getting either of those or from the Aerocool horse power range. For now I'll reinstall drivers to 8.6, remove 2x 512 rams and see if I still get the same prob. Sad when u can't play a game for more than 15mins after buying a new GFX card.

BTW: I read "ThisNoobAgain" sig and I realised I have only a 4pin connected to my 8pin on my mobo....could that also be the problem?
