  1. i can play games like 20 mins. 30 mins. 1 hour. . . but after that it hangs up the only way to turn off my computer is to manually restart it.. maybe its because of my power supply because my power supply is only 300w.. or the problem is in my video card because i recently bought my video card 3 weeks ago since then i bought that video card,, i got that problem.. pls help.. tnx.. :)

    Computer Specs:
    Windows 7 Ultimate
    Intel Core 2 Duo 6400 @ 2.13Ghz
    2GB Ram
    Nvidia 8400GS

    You're right!
    300 watt PSU is not enough!
    Don't know what HDD , DVD USB is connected, but I recommend at least 450 (higher is better)

    Maybe this can help to find out how many watts you need at least
