I just built this machine, poured much time and money into it, and it was working like a dream for a week, (with some software XP 64 bit issues I resolved).
Now when-ever the slightest impact comes near the thing it turns off. I considered it a PSU/Mobo problem I opened the case and checked all the connections, I can't see anything wrong or loose. It is crowded in there though, + the PSU is a pretty good one with enough power to handle everything in there.
Here's my specs, any help would be greatly appreciated as this is stressing me out a little, and I can't afford to builld another.
