your power supply does not have enough amparage for the video card. the video card needs 38amps the PSU provides 36 amps. but other than that, you might want to downgrade the Video card to a regular x1900xt because the new G80s are coming out in a few months. change the mobo to MSI K8N neo4-F. as for power supply get the Antec TruePowerII 550watt, if ever u upgrade the VIdeo card, im sure it will handle it, it has 38 amps.
