Some cards require more than 1 pci-e power connector to be pluged in (my 9800gtx does), make sure everything is connected correctly. I had a 500watt psu that resulted in me getting that error a few weeks before it died. anyway you can try another psu ? jsc a b U Graphics card February 23, 2009 12:52:28 PM Seasonics are pretty good PSU's, but if the system says that you have a power problem, that's the first thing to check out.
