Default New RAM = UNSTABLE system

Ok heres the story, bear with me,

Me and my friend have SAME CPU/MOBO combo, went out and bought SAME dual channel 1gig of ram (2x512). I can run both sticks fine, when he runs both stick his computer will restart during games, frequently (he can run 1 stick fine or 1 stick +dif stick of lower speed ram. MY QUESTION is, does DDR400 ram require considerably more power then that of lower speed ram, enough to where his 400 W power supply is not capable of producing enough and where my 450W is?

His 400 watt power supply may be the culprit, as no name ones will give unclean incostestant power causing crashes
