    the one I linked above.

    This will last you for a while even if you decide to further upgrade your hardware... except it won't handle SLI or Crossfire, so if you plan on using more than 1 vid card, you'd have to get a 650 or 750W depending on which vid cards and on the rest of your system. It can handle most dual-core and quad-core systems though, even when OC'd. All the Corsair TX/VX/HX line of power supplies are very well built with high quality materials and give very stable voltage (unstable voltages cause your system to crash and freeze).. every review site rates them among the best.

    dual cores also take more power than single-core, and even though 400w is the 'bare minimum' I would highly recommend a good quality 500+W PSU at least. It would stress a 400w one too much which can lead to degraded 3d performance and eventually freezes/shutdowns.

    I had a 480W PSU, but after upgrading to a dual core it started freezing from time to time, then within a month my system would completely shut down... I would turn it back on and less than an hour later it shuts down again. Upgraded to the PSU that I linked in my above post and since then it's been 100% stable.. not a single crash/freeze or shutdown.

    350W??? Are you serious?

    Big problem. I recommend this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9004&Tpk=550vx

    You won't be able to play with a 350w... heh sorry there is no way. Really got to upgrade that PSU to a good high quality, minimum 500-550w or so.

    Check mother board spec i dont think your processor is recomended only single core for the ASUS A8NE-FM

    i figured out that i had a problem with my motherboard, my memory slots 1 + 3 gave bad test results.
    After removing the memory from those slots ut3 did not crash anymore

    Depends on which 8600GT you have to be honest, it varies with the brand of it!

    The 8600 is most likely your problem, as it is a very hot running card. You can raise the rpm's of the fan with the Nvidia Tuner. Once you do that, I suspect your crashes will subside.

    If they don't, keep the rpm's of the fan high and in the Settings, turn down the settings, and if you are using an LCD display, with high resolutiion, you will have to lower it.
