Uhh, yeah buddy. From your equipment in the box, that PSU is way overloaded and cannot keep up with the demand. Needs a good 450-500watt PSU and STAY AWAY FROM THOSE CHEAP PSUs!!

The PSU is the most important component is a system and yours is stressed way to hard. You need a high quality PSU like A Fortron Source or another Antec with more W's.

ok, how good are the thermaltakes with 480w ?

There ok, in fact I have one myself but I wouldnt get another one because the Fortron Source is a much better buy. Your not probably wanting to spend this much but the best PSU on the market is the Thermaltake 680W. If I were you I would look at the Fortron Source-Blue Storm and be sure to get the newer split rail in whichever PSU you decide to get<A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti..." target="_new">http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti...;/A>

Ok i did look at this power supply. the only con it has is a passive pfc. If it had a active one, i would be more comfortable with bying it.
