    You need a new power supply. You need at least 250W but to be safe, go for a good quality 300W. This should give you all the power you need.

    Current Main Rig:
    AMD FX55 @ 2.9 GHz
    2 GB PC 3200 DDR RAM
    ABIT KN8 SLi motherboard
    ATI X1900XT O/C to XTX speeds

    Retired Rig:
    AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton @ 2387 MHz. (217*11)
    512MB DDR RAM @ 436 MHz. (PC 3700)
    Abit AN7 motherboard
    BFG GeForce 6800GT OC!

    If you want to go with very high end power supplies then the best choice in my opinion would be www.pcpowercooling.com
    ? Quantum Physics ? Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
