    Hello mobilesuite2000 and welcome to Techspot.

    Check that your psu is powerful enough for your system.

    Take a look at this Psu wattage calculator.

    i tried that thing and it said that i only needed 227 watts of power. and i have a 360 watt psu. a friend of mine gave this pcu to me and he had a 6800gt in his computer with 11 fans and it worked fine.

    Check your system for overheating.

    Make sure you have the latest drivers, including chipset drivers.

    I`d still be tempted to try another psu.

    Regards Howard :)
