Default Do I really need a new PSU?

I have a generic 450watt psu (the brand is JustPC) that came with my case that I bought from Fry's. My room gets really hot b/c of the computer. My computer somtimes skips when I'm playing Battlefield 2; like there's stuttering. I don't think it would be my 6600GT...

Do I need a new PSU?

Probably because of heat. Put a fan or two by you case(open it of course) and if it dosn't skip, you should be fine. Just buy a new fan if it is the heat. If it's from the PSU, it will still skip while the fans are there.

I just did that, and It worked great for the few couple hours of gaming. Hardly any skips at all!

But after that it started to skip bad.

Here's my voltage readings:

ATX + 3.3V 3.11-3.09V
+ 5.0V 4.86V
+12V 11.96-11.89V
+5V5B 4.94-4.91V

Battery 3.06V

CPU 49*C
Sys Temp 1 34*C
Sys Temp 2 32*C
