my power supply is 650W industrial, and my PC never had a problem till a week ago, it started shutting down after a few minutes in any heavy game, and i checked temp. with Everest and it was 73 Degrees when it shuts down.
so i thought the problem is with the PSU that it can't supply enough power anymore, so i had this idea about plugging 1 screen to my HD3200 to reduce load on my GPU
You can if you use XP/win7. Vista doesn't support using two video card drivers.
so how can i do it ? i tried to connect both but the one connected to the integrated doesn't show anything
Did you have the drivers installed? You might have removed them when you installed the 9600GT? Turning it back on won't help with a power problem, only make it worse. Now your PSU has to power the 9600GT and the 3200.

i disconnected the 9600GT so i can install the ATI drivers, then i connected the 9600GT and tried, didn't work
What was 72c? Have you dusted your case?
the GPU Diode was 72C, but i don't think the temperature is the problem, as it recently started to shut down at 60s
and all other temperatures are sub 40
also my case had so much dust and i cleaned it with an air blower and it's shining but i couldn't see any other difference

so is there any other solution other than buying a power supply ?
also i forgot to tell u that when my PC shuts down, i have to replug the power cable to turn it back on
