You may want to consider a new PSU, as at its age, it's probably doing at best 600W on 100% load.

Otherwise, what's your budget?

LatiosXT,
You don't think the power supply is sufficient.. it's just a little over a year old, the original power supply died & was replace w/the Corsair TX650W I'm using now!?

"Otherwise, what's your budget?"
For a game: I figured around $60.00.
For the new system: $600.00
NOTE: I already have the OCZ Vertex 4, I got it on Black Friday for $168.30 shipped.. it's still setting in the box on a shelf waiting to be used! lol
Later, Phil B.

I recommend Far Cry 3 for a game to play.

I'm already on my 3rd play through.
