My PSU is Sumvision powerX2 700W do you think that could be the issue i would have thought that was enough yo power it.
I don't know maybe when your CPU and GPU load together it is drawing to much power for the PSU.

Is this it?

read the 4th post down. I take all reviews with a grain of salt though.

I have that exact same graphics card and it requires 2- 6 pin connectors from the PSU. From the specs on the link to that PSU it doesn't even looks like it has 2-6 pin connectors. How do you have it hooked up to the graphics card? Are you using an adapter or something?

Using a molex to 6 pin connector. This has got me thinking it could very well be the PSU as the power from the overclocked 2500k coupled with the GTX 460 may be too much for it which would explain why my cpu overclock is infact stable yet any Graphics tasks will crash my system. I just wish there was a way to know for sure. Could anybody suggest a different power supply bearing in mind i would like to sli in the future so i guess i will need to buy one sooner or later anyway.
