    time for a new PSU. and get a little larger, if u are intending to use it for a while get a good brand and a 600 watt or bigger.

    Antec is a good brand... that one is just a bit dated... 500 watts should be enough. Quality is always more important than watts... It is not the Watts, but rather the amperage. But more is better, even in watts.
    There are lots of good brands... Antec, FSP Group, Sparkle, CoolerMaster, CoolMax, PCPower and Cooling,

    Didn't the card come with an adapter that converts two molex connectors into one PCI Express power plug?

    OCZ and Raidmax are good companies too.
