On ATITool, open "Show 3D View" on the bottom left. This will put your video card on load while you can monitor your temperature. Run it for like 15 minutes. If it gets near the 90's, then turn it off, that's hot.

You can't run the 3D view behind other windows or minimized.

It looks to be a generic power supply

Here's a really cheap ($29.99 after rebate, $59.99 before) and reliable power supply
