your PSU is only 115W? definately replace it its the most likely culprit and it sounds rubbish anyway.

A cheap PSU ought to do your PC fine, a $30 400W generic jobby. Obviously the more you spend the better quality you get, more stable voltages, more power, more reliable parts, quieter cooler running.. etc

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

Power supply is to small..not enough juice to power all components..slap a 400wt in there Especially while launching a game it is going to draw a lot of power since all your components are working extremely hard...hard drive, RAM, video card, processor, cd-rom drive if applicable...If it is 115wt I would bet that is the main problem..
