No such thing as a pentium 4 core 2 duo. It's just a core 2 duo.

Change that power supply. It can take your whole system with it.
Get a Corsair:
Top Tier PSU:
AMD Certified PSUs (Single+Crossfire):
Certified SLI-Ready Power Supplies
Core i7-860 system

Agreed! Geta better PSU!
Get also a better memory from Corsair or Crucial! A-DATA is just a cheap and sometimes good sometimes doesn't.
