What brand is your power supply, and how many amps are on it's 12v rail. 400 watts is pretty weak if it's not a good brand, could be causing issues.

Yup you better check that PSU, if the amps are bad, you need a new PSU.

If you do get another PSU, which you probably should, I just saw this killer deal. The PSU is much larger than you need, but this deal is awesome and it will carry you through multiple upgrades.

PC Power & Cooling S75QB 750W, it's only $96.00 till 9/26 if you use the promo code PCPC20 shown on the top of the page in red.

You didn't mention your video card temp. It sounds like it may be overheating possibly. The reason I say that is your processor temps seem quite high. Hows the air flow in your case?
Could be the power supply too, 400 watts may seem like enough power, but it really depends on the quality of the unit. Need to check how many amps on your 12v rail.
That pcp&c unit zorg mentioned is an excellent power supply.
I have a Antec 650 with my 8800gt, but I have an overclocked system with power needs. You can get pretty good deals on 500 watt power supplies from reputable suppliers in the 50-75 dollar range, that should be enough power unless you plan to upgrade to sli. Then go for 600 watts and above.

You have to get a new one. That's the only way. A power supply isn't something you should get cheap on to save money, it's arguably the most important part of your PC. Pick a good one.

That thermaltake should be perfect for you. 430 watts is more than enough for your system, gl!

To tell you the truth man, its probably a p;roblem with steam.. Try reinstalling it and see what happens. Steam is bad.. Lol but I play css. Im addicted
