You are most likely have a driver issue or a dodgy card and as a seperate thing you should at some point in the near future upgrade your psu but it shouldn't be a desperate priority.
True, but 392w is over 32Amps. And if he has only 36A cmoing from the 12v rail...i thought i was running on the edge with mine, thats all.
Anyway, yeh your probably right, all other possible problems should be considered first, then the PSU.
