I have an Enermax 465 with 33a on the 12v rail. The rest of my specs are in my sig. I do have a few more peripherals in the system, but no big deal.

The problem I was having with my nforce 3 & 6800gt combo was that I had pauses in games for a few seconds. This was completely random, somedays never, somedays quite a few times while playing. I was certain it was due to the issues between the two components. Now I have my new setup and it does the same exact thing except for even longer pauses. I had my card clocked at 495/1.15 and it performed flawlessly except for the pauses. It is now at 470/1.1 and I don't have the issue. I can run any 3d test at the higher clocks with no issue. I can run any stress test stable for hours on end. The only thing I can think of is the power supply just not having enough juice. It sucks not being able to get out of the system what you could be getting.

I've got my eye on this Silverstone model from the egg.
