i just built my friend a new system but we have some issues with what i believe is the power supply...
the specs are as follows:
amd64 3200+ Venice
1 gig kingston ram
120gb sata hdd
sparkle 6600gt pci-e vga card
whenever he plays a game the video card just turns off! usually within about 5 mins of the game loading... originally we had a 400w generic psu in the box, but the max output for the 12v connectors was only 15 amps and from what i have read it needs to be more than 20, so we put a 350w antec psu in there with a 21amp max output but it still happens
we have tried different ram and a different cpu but it happens all the time
can anyone tell me the problem? the motherboard has a 24pin connector for the psu but it can still take 20 pin atx psu's - which ours are, could this be the problem?
