Unhappy Power shutting off

Ever since I installed my new ATI 9800, my computer just randomly shuts off. Sometimes I can go days with no problem, but most of the time it shuts off many times a day. When this happens I need to unplug the power and plug it in a few times before it runs again. I have been told that it could be either my power supply is not high enough or that I need more RAM. I am not sure how the RAM could be causing it, but then again that is why I am here because I dont know the answer. I have tried going into my computer and unplugging just about everything that I dont need in order to lower power consumption but it still shuts down. Here is my computer, sorry I dont have all the details in front of me.

298 watt pwer supply (I think)
P4 2.8 gig
160gig HD
512 RAM
Onboard Sound
ATI Radeon 9800
DVD Burner
TV Tuner

Thanks for any advice
