Critical errors with new PSU and GPU

I've recently installed a Nvidia 9800 GT and a Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply to run it, but recently my computer has randomly been freezing and I go into the event viewer and there's a long string of errors going on but this is the only critical one that repeatedly happens whenever my computer freezes.

More about critical errors
  1. Have you uninstalled the old graphic driver before installing the new one? Another problem may be registry errors and resource wasting crap that builds up over time. Run CCleaner and do the Clean and Registry both.

    I uninstalled them before I installed the new GFX card, I also installed GEFORCE 280.26 DRIVER over the newer drivers which I was having trouble with. I just used the cleaner and registry cleaner, so we shall see how this goes

    Try using the beta NVIDIA driver 304.79

    Doesn't say my Nvidia 9800 GT is supported

    There may be remnants of old drivers still in the registry. If all else fails, uninstall the driver again, run Driver Sweeper from Safe Mode and have it remove any AMD, ATI, and Nvidia graphic driver remnants it finds. Re-boot and install the latest driver for your card and O/S.

    Checking my event logs, it's always this kernel power event 41 crap, anyhow I think it may be the drivers. Is there like a way to update all my drivers?
