it really sounds like a power issue to me, get an OCZ powerstream 500W, if u dont have the money to do that try to get one with at least 450W

it would cost me 13.50 and two weeks time to send in my 6800 to evga and the thing that makes me nervous is i'm getting a card that "hasn't been used" according to the guy but it's been in computers to "test" it....wtf is that? why am i not getting a brand new one. reccommendations on whether to send it in or to just get a new psu? thanks
