Just wondering if it was a decent desision to just purchase a new 750w PSU to replace my current working PSU? The reason I am doing so is because recently I purchased a new video card(HD7950), and everytime I try to OC the darn thing my PSU overvoltage protection kicks in and shut the computer down. lol.
Right now I have the Thermaltake Toughpower 750w from all the way back in 2006. It has done me well, but I dont think it was quite ready to handle the power draw that OCing the 7950 and my PH II x6 at 4ghz required.
So I guess my thermaltake is just getting too weak to handle the load after all these years? Why else would the overvoltage protection kick in? Not able to supply the gpu the total power it needs for some reason. It is only when I try to OC the 7950 that it shuts down.
