Go for 1k watt psu, btw, are your graphic cards connect to each other with a sli band? It would definitely help reducing the load on the motherboard.

Default Re: psu problem

1kw is over kill by a long shot. A flakey psu is no reason to go overboard on it's replacement. I use the Corsair AX850. It has 70 amps on the 12 volt rail which is plenty for most systems.
