When does the system turn off? e.g. straight away, on the login screen, etc.
Oh well I have one PCI Express plugged into the graphics card.
With th 2nd pair I showed only one of them is plugged in the hard-drive and the others aren't plugged into anything.
Basically I just plugged the normal power cords (the one I showed you was from the case) from the Power Supply and connected them to the ones of the case. Is that incorrect?
In terms of when the system turns off. It's usually like 4 minutes after I turn it on. I know my power supply should be strong enough.
Oh I forgot here are my specs for the PC:
TX650W Power Supply - 650 Watt
8800GT MSI 512MB - Graphics Card
Q6600 Quard-Core Intel - CPU
G-Skill (2 X 2) 4 GB - RAM
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L S-Series - Motherboard
Seagate 320GB 3.0 SATA - Hard-Drive
