    hello, i saw it in the nvidia.com website and it says it requires a 450w as minimum i can recommend you a gold certified silverstone PSU, take a look.

    http://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-750Watts-Magnetized-ST75F-G-Evolution/dp/B006MBP7DG/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1360602300&sr=1-2&keywords=silverstone+750w

    and i think the heat went up is because of the effort of the psu itself, ive understood that the most part of psu have a peak limit, example this silverstone maybe has a peak of 840 watts, so your psu is always in its peak due to the card, the card demands more power than the psu can bring it, so buy a better one and always gold certified :) have a nice day and i hope i can help you with this.
