For the GTX470 i would recommend the Corsair VX550W. That would be good enough for it. If you are Oc'ing card or proccy then the TX650W would be good.

Do a check on the HDD. Maybe its dying. Also do you have any anti virus installed. If yes, which one?

-the 320HDD is for my friend and i dont think its dying cause he got it few months ago..
-no i did not have install any anti-virus yet
-Corsair is not available in my country which is JORDAN(MiddleEast)

What brands are available in Jordan? Let us know and we may pick one.

About the HDD, you can try it on some other PC and see if it causes the same problem. If its an external one, then do get it checked by a good anti-virus. It may be infected.

thanks for the replay...
-brands available are Gigabyte only i guess cause i have never seen anything else except those are made in china (fake brands) :S
-am using the 320HDD right now with Avira Premium Security Suite 10 updated and scanned and did not found any threats or problems....

am right now removing the GPU and testing the PSU...

If you read the link i provided it's evident your psu is underpowered.
The best thing for you to do is provide us a link to vendors you can purchase from.
In lieu of that Antec,Seasonic,Silverstone,Coolermaster,OZC,make good psu's.

Look at the Odin Plus and above. The Plus 600W would be sufficient.

The 700w Odin Plus is actually a good unit so the 600w should be similiar.

thnak you for the info...

i dont know if they gonna accept it if i give them back cause its useless right now :S

the Plus 600W not available...these are available right now http://www.ttc-jo.com/product/pc-component/power-supply

720 is my choice then

The best choice is the 800w PRO model but i realize it's overkill but the best offering nonetheless.

The 720 will work but keep in mind it only puts out 610w once again a sub-par performance.
However the 720 Superb will solve your current problems even if it isn't the best choice.
