I recently purchased 2 Gainward GTX 460 2GB to replace my old 9500GTs and a 1000W power supply to feed them. However, after installing them the machine would cut power after a few minutes of being turned on. I assume it is the mobo that is causing this problem.
Would it be possible to salvage my cpu and avoid having to completely upgrade my PC to support the GTX 460s?
My current machine:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83Ghz
MB: Asus P5N-E SLI
GPU: Nvidia 9500GT x2 (SLI)
PSU: 350V, unknown make
Memory: Corsair Value Select 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2
HDD: 750 GB Seagate Barracuda
