Gateway dx4822-01 upgrade with Corsair PSU & NVidia GTX295

Having problems getting the system w/ Win7 to run reliably with just the PSU upgrade so far... Factory PSU works fine. However, once I connect the Corsair 850, the system does not boot correctly and forces me to run system restore back to factory defaults before it works correctly again. Also, does anyone know whether or not the SATA ports are addressed? Appreciate any kind advice and assistance so I can start Modern Warefare2 tonight - if possible.

Yes finally resolved, after being able to run MW2 for about 3 hrs, system cooked itself, returned for another one. With second unit, after running MW2 for about 2 hrs, system cooked itself. Returned second unit for full refund and purchased a new CyberPower system (with much better case cooling) from newegg.

Would not POST with a single beep initially. Forced system restore was an interim symptom. Okay now - returned system (twice) and bought another better cooling case.
