You really tried to hook that up with a 400w psu? LOL

Did you even bother to read the power requirements? Since you failed to mention what brand this 400w psu is, I would assume it's generic, and really only put's out 300w or less.

What's your budget for a psu? A quality 500w would work, but I would suggest a 550-600w quality unit.

Why do you need to spend $150-200 on a psu when a $50 psu is overkill for your system???? Makes no sense at all.

There's absolutely no reason to get a 800w psu except to waste your money.

Your motherboard has no option to add another video card.
