Change the PSU to a better brand. I suggest OCZ Modxstream Pro 700 watts 80+ certified.

Have you by chance checked your CPU temps? Do you have an aftermarket heat sink or the included one?

Yesterday, when i send out the request, my computer was constantly rebooting every 5-10 mins. so i did not have time to type the message.

I been re-installing windows 7 several times now and i think i found the cause of the problem.

I have been trying to install windows and test each time i install a monitor and noted that everytime i install the GTX 580 drivers, my PC started to reboot.

Its the same in most of the instances. Even now, i installed everything except the GTX 580 drivers and it works fine.

now all i need is to find out how to fix it ><. anybody has any ideas?

Well what driver are you installing that's causing the issue? Have you tried another one?

ROFL- I'd take the Antec over the OCZ any day. You can't help but laugh at some of the stupid things people post, this one should go into the "dumbest post of the week" drawing.

Some vague ideas come to mind;
Is the GPU installed in the upper-most slot?
Is the BIOS set to PCI or PCIe?
You mentioned earlier that blowing a fan somewhere helped - blowing where?

Yes
Yes
blowing into the case, i opened up the side panel and have the fan blowing directly into it.

The system was rebooting madly before when i was installing windows, so i guess the idea of the driver was rebooting the system seems to have gone out the window. i'm back to square one :(

RMA the video card. It's probably crashing due to a bad GPU or the video card RAM.

Actually, for it to be "rebooting like mad" tells me the CPU isn't getting cooled. Is the CPU fan plugged into the proper header?

Like I said before make sure your CPU temps are where they should be. If you have improper thermal paste application or poor cooling your PC may spontaneously reboot to protect you. However it could very well be a number of issues. Download RealTempGT and check your CPU temps before you RMA anything, whether it be PSU or GPU.
