That's your problem. Only get quality PSUs from Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, OCZ.

Raidmax is crap. It doesn't have enough amps to power the card.

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.

The Raidmax Hybrid Series 630 Watts (RX-630SS), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 36 Amps and with one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 560.

I would never buy a Raidmax PSU to begin with.

I am only providing an answer to the OP, not an opinion.

There's no proof that the power supply is even working correctly.

So basically it is sufficient, but only on paper. We don't know if they lied.
