After upgrading from a XFX 512MB 8600GT (300W min. req.) to a Zotac 512MB 9600GT ECO (350W min. req.) my system started to unexpectedly reboot.
Sys. specs:
Mobo: Intel DP35DP
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6750
OS: WinXP 64 Pro
PSU: 500W retail

I suspected it could be the PSU, but it's an "ECO" version of the 9600GT, and it supposedly require not too much power (350W) from the PSU.
Please, help!

Nobody helps... Anyway, I found the problem. It was a false contact on a pad of the PCB of the PSU due to a cold welding. Maybe this can help someone with a similar problem.
Thanks anyway.
