It might actually be your power supply. Wattage isn't everything, you have to look at the amperage on the 12V rail. Also your card could just be defective.

you aren't by any chance using a Nforce 3 mobo are you? there is Huge Compatability issues between Nforce 3's and geforce 6XXX cards, need to disable agp fast writes in bios and rivatuner if it's stuttering badly and locking up.
I'd also bid on the power supply if this isn't the case.
