Default Computer booting up and restarting

Well, I helped build my friends computer and it seems to be powering up and right before the OS loads up the computer shuts off. His system right now is..

Antec 900
Gigabyte P34-DSR3
EVGA Geforce 8800GTS 320mb
320gb Seagate harddrive
2x1GB Crucial Ram
Rosewill RP550 550w power supply

I'm guessing the power supply is too weak to run his computer, but i just wanted to make sure before we return it to new egg.

Thanks for the help!

Its either that or an overheating CPU.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

550W is plenty. Have you double checked all wires?
