GeForce 8800GTX problems

Hi. I bought a new computer yesterday.
MB Asus P5B Deluxe
CPU Intel Core 2 Duo 6600
RAM Corsair 2x1024 Dominator
HDD Samsung SATA2 400GB 16MB Cache
VGA Msi Geforce 8800GTX 768MB
PSU Enermax G565AX-VE(G) 535W
LCD Samsung 204B 20.1"

I have following problems... When I go via DVI on 1280x1024 it goes OK, when I turn to 1600x1200 the LCD start turning off or blinking... when I use the analog input everything goes Ok even on the resolution of 1600x1200. May it be caused by the PSU? I heard there must be more ampers on 12V. On the PSU is said the 12V together gives output of 34A. Is the PSU weak for this VGA card? Next problem is when I was playing Oblivion something some creepy sounds goes from the mashine, like squeaking. When I press ESC the menu appears and the sound is gone. Then I press resume and it squeaks again.

Please help me, cause I am absoulutely dissapointed, you know how much cost this whole computer set up

try drivers and reinstalling Direct X, if that doesn't work have a look into if the PSU is the problem, the way that said might save you some money (you might not need to get another PSU) :)

I think the psu is weak.

Try with a Thermaltake 700W, highly recommended.

I have my system running on an Antec Neo HE 550w with absolutely no issues.

Athlon 64 4000+
2gb OCZ PC3200
Asus A8N SLI
36gb Raptor
74gb Raptor
Sony DVD Burner
Lite-On DVD-rom
Xfx GeForce 8800GTX

I even have the 8800 clocked to 620mhz/935mhz and everything runs smooth as butter. Not sure of the price difference between the Neo and the Thermaltake 700w, but if the Thermaltake costs more I see no reason to go with it over the Neo HE
