I recently purchased a new HP Desktop to replace my old P4 3Ghz PC with 1MB Ram (which seemed to do a better job then my new setup below)
While playing various HD compressed videp=o files in both 720p & 1080p, on any of the three software players installed, VLC, Freesmith, or DA Player, all movies crash after less than a minute and player either restarts or returns to blank start screen. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. My PC and Video Card specs below:

Just checked that my Power Supply is only 300W and the video card recommends 400W minimum. Could that be causing the videos to stop suddenly?
