yeah, your psu is capable of supplying 680w max power... but the problem is that the majority of the power is on the 3.3v and 5v rails...

older computers primarily used the 3.3v and 5v rails and that is why a lot of power supplies still have most of their amps on these rails... the problem is that today's computers draw most of their current from the 12v rails... so the newest psus have more power on the 12v rail(s) and not as much on the other rails as they used to.

for example, my Seasonic S12-600 which is widely held as the best psu for under $200 has rails like this:
3.3v 30a
5v 30a
12v1 18a
12v2 18a

so you see my psu has almost double the amps on the 12rails (mine has 2) and much less power on the 3.3v and 5v rails

OK I put the new psu in(antec smart power 500w) for now.
Much better, still have some snow like artifacts will try to do what: (TheWaxShop) said about the delta settings.

One more question, my psu has a 6 pin pci-e connector on it, should I use that or use the adapter that came with and have 2 4 pin molex's plugged in?
thanks guys!
