you sure it only has 24 on the 12v? there is no 12v2 stat?

24a on the 12v is what you would find on a 400w PSU, on a 600w its a bad sign.

You bought the 465, a HD 6850 should be better and lower consumption. What brand and model is the PSU?

dont get a crap PSU, just because it says 600w does not mean it can supply that power continuously. its probably 600w peak at 15 degrees C. when will people learn....

Both garbage
The card must have cost you a few bucks, now spend the money to power it.

like DELL stated both are poor power supplies. do you have a budget to purchase the PSU? I would avoid, they really sell garbage on their site. Believe it or not, their products are over-priced for what you get and that says a lot when all their PSU are $20.
