Thumbs down Hardware issue please help

Hi all

I have the following

1.5GB ram
ATI x800XT
MSI K8N neo Mobo
USG creative Audigy 2 (with own power)
DVD writter
Floppy Drive
Asus CPU Fan
3 Exhaust Fans
1 Intake fan

Average CPU temp Idle 36c
In game 55c
system temp is always 35 - 40c

I posted previously a problem in which my monitor just turns off when I am in a game some times the sound is on and others it is not, but all in all the computer is totally none responsive.

I ran the cool and quite MSI monitoring application and when I was in a game I had an alarm going off on my

3.0v and 12v monitors as they were dropping to

2.93v and 10.50v

Thinking that power was the problem I have turned on cool and quite in the bios meaning that my Processor is running at 800mhz but this is causing a problem when I load games they report that my processor is not fast enough.

I have tried disabling cool and quite and dynamic overeclocking but the above PC crash problem comes back

I recetly brought the X800 cause the crash problem was there with my old card but seems to happen more often since the x800 plugs in to the power direct

Would getting a more powerful PSU solve the voltage problem. Any one got any Ideas as I would have thought that a 500wat PSU would cope with the hardware I have

thanks in advance

I dont know much about power supplys but what brand is your 500W power supply?

There are other people on where with alot of knowledge about PSUs so im am sure they will help you out.

And yes 500W should be enought.. im running 2HDs,4 sticks or ram,a dual core CPU and a 7800GTx on a 500W.
