for a PSU, look for Antec, Thermaltake, Enermax, Cooler Master or OCZ, and at least 420W. preferrably 450W or more

You'd have to use a monitoring program ( or generally in your BIOS, but you won't be able to check when your CPU when it's at load) and see what your +12v rail is running....if you see it dipping down to 11.5v or even worse then you can assume it is infact the PSU

the +12 rail is running at 11.89v on average, the highest is 12.16v, and the lowest was 11.61.
